Git and Bzr


Some tools from this were broken… got a decent set of revisions working… yay!

Grab and install the following:


git clone
(working HEAD was 280eba)

Now install

cd /usr/local/bin
sudo ln -s ../src/git-bzr-ng/git-bzr-ng git-bzr


bzr branch lp:bzr-fastimport -r327

Now install.
I know there’re much better ways to do this… I’m just capturing what I did to get it to work

cd bzr-fastimport
sudo ./ install
mv /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzr-fast"*" /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/
mv /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzrlib/plugins/fastimport /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bzrlib/plugins/

on Ubuntu/Debian:

apt-get install git-core bzr bzr-fastimport; 
git clone git://
cd git-bzr
sudo cp git-bzr /usr/local/bin

Using git-bzr:

An example session goes like this:

$ git init
$ git bzr add upstream ../bzr-branch
$ git bzr fetch upstream
$ git checkout -b local_branch upstream
$ Hack hack, merge merge....

$ git bzr push upstream
