According to this thread:

the initial "bzr branch" command for Emacs takes twice as much for as with lp:emacs (for machines that are not on
the same LAN as 45 to 60 min for lp:emacs vs 2
to 2.5 hours for bzr.savannah.  Even the inefficient SFTP method was
much faster than the current "smart server".

Note that routine day-to-day operations with the smart server are
reasonably fast.  However, the initial checkout that takes 2 hours is
a serious turn-off for newcomers; many of them turn to git mirrors
(which are synchronized with the Bazaar repo only once a day and lack
a common language, revision ID wise, with the mainline development),
which is undesirable.

According to this message:

we could get significantly faster operation during the initial "bzr
branch" command if the Bazaar server on savannah would be upgraded to
a newer (2.2+) version.  Is this possible?
