This morning I announced the availability of bzr branches for every source package in Ubuntu.

This is exciting, and I hope the first step in revolutionising the way we develop Ubuntu. I believe it will lead to an increase in efficiency, and give us interesting new ways to collaborate.

There's a long way to go yet though, this is just the first milestone. Over the next few development cycles we will be improving the branches themselves so you can work more effectively with people outside Ubuntu using them, as well as improving the tools to help us use them, and many things we haven't thought of yet.

I'd like to thank the Bazaar developers for the tool that all of this is built on, as well as Robert Collins, Colin Watson who helped massively with this project, and our hard working sysadmins who keep everything running smoothly.
