I went through the putput of bzr log --levels 0 with grep and eyeball
last night; those are what I found.

It would be helpful if you were to supply what you think of as the
real list.

After we change over, the Bazaar revision numbers will be meaningless
except as keys to a map file which is just going to associate them
with the action stamps I'm replacing them with.

Please explain what information you think is being lost here, because
I don't get it.

What would you do instead?  What information do you believe the newer
.cvsignores carry that the .bzrignores and .gitignores do not?
