If you have bzr-git installed, you can simply say "bzr merge" or "bzr

IOW, that plugin makes git repositories first-class bzr citizens
(except that "bzr push" doesn't work yet, so you can only use the git
repo in read-only mode).  I actually use this to track several git
repositories, and my experience is very good, with a single exception:
the original "bzr branch" command is painfully slow for repositories
with many revisions, because the step that computes bzr metadata from
git takes a very long time (I filed a bug report about that).
