Isn't that what I said, too?  (I didn't see Andreas's message until
after writing mine, so you now have 2 independent opinions that say
essentially the same.)

What do you mean by "trimmed"?  If you mean removed from the
repository, then I thought you were converting only select branches
anyway, and elpa wasn't one of them.  Bazaar repositories are just
collections of branches, so converting all of them into a git repo is
not necessarily the wisest course of action, to say the least.

I actually don't understand why you are doing a separate new
conversion, instead of relying on what Andreas already did.  AFAIR,
there was no serious discussions of this, and certainly no decision
(except, perhaps, by you).
