  What's the URL on launchpad for your branches ? After installing
git-bzr-ng and the fastimport plugin for bzr, I went into my git tree,
and used this command to grab a branch from launchpad:

git bzr import

It's not real fast, but appears to work fine. You can get fast-import
from:, and then stick it in
~/.bazar/plugins/. The import creates a branch in git that's the same as
the bzr branch.

As an experiment, I imported my month old OpenVG branch into git, and
then merged that into master. I did wind up with some merge conflicts
when changes were made to the same files my branch and in trunk, but I'd
have similar problems with bzr.
