Migrating Bazaar repositories to Git on Launchpad

Dear Ubuntu Contributors!

Launchpad already supports git but there are still many active bzr
repositories there.

If you would like to migrate some of them to git I'd like to suggest
taking a look at bzr-git-mass-convert [1] based on bzr fast-export
(verifying the result with git-remote-bzr). It is a simple tool for
merging multiple bzr branches to a single git repository, set up for
pushing it back to Launchpad.

We (at the Foundations Team) use it for migrating our repositories and
there is also a wiki [2] page for tracking the migration schedule [3]
of popular repositories.

For example we plan migrating livecd-rootfs on December 12, please get
your open MP's merged by then to avoid the extra work of resubmitting
them against the new git repo.

There is also a new tracker to list packages still maintained in bzr,
grouped by the teams [4].
