What we are really trying to do is engage the Emacs community to spend more
time on Emacs rather than fighting version control.  For many, the "path of
least resistance" is to provide commits in a format they can most easily
consume, rather than mandating that all use a single system to satisfy a
political goal which may or may not concern them.

In the end, I think increasing the pool of Emacs developers, the speed of
Emacs development, the amount of testing and bug fixing that gets done, will
serve the FSF's overall agenda more than trying to garner public support for
Bazaar through a single project.
