Yes, but it's very hard to keep them synchronized without a merge
manager, especially if you have to convert between Git and Bazaar.  For
Gnus we have Yamaoka-san who keeps us sane, doing the merges in a
semi-automatic way.  I tried to get something automatic between Gnus and
Emacs working last year and was unable to convince Bazaar to do what I
wanted, after a few days of hacking.  Perhaps it's a matter of training
and dedication I lacked; if anyone has *automated* the merge workflow
between Git and Bazaar for two large, partially overlapping and with
many files renamed, repositories, I'd love to know how it can be done.
