I grabbed this (300MB) today over my work connection. I tweaked
trunk/.bzr/branch/branch.conf to point it to use http: instead of
sftp. I was then able to bzr pull the week or so of missing revisions.
It took about 40 minutes, downloaded something greater than 100MB [1]
and ended up adding about 30MB to .bzr.

[1] I stopped watching after a few minutes, and unfortunately bzr
wipes it's progress bar from the terminal once the download has
completed, so there's no way to see how much data was finally
transferred. It also doesn't write this to .bzr.log. Perhaps it

So: your tarball was a help, thank you! However, I noticed that
pulling from the mirror on lauchpad seems faster than savannah.
Perhaps they're running a smartserver already? Is said mirror anything
like official, or will it go away once the savannah teams gets
loggerhead is working?

I'll be honest: compared to git, bzr is something of a let down, but I
don't much mind. I'm glad to have an excuse to learn more about bzr.
(I'm a VCS generalist. I follow a couple of open source projects that
use mercurial for the same reason.)
