    AFAIK Canonical still employs several development teams to work on Launchpad (the teams work in a rotation on either new features, bugfixes, etc.), a QA team, and last year hired a new community contact for Launchpad users & customers. To me that doesn't sound like they "stopped funding" it...

      From what I heard from a Canonical employee, both Bzr and Launchpad funding has been dropped recently along with the move to stop UDS as a real life conference and other seemingly cost cutting measures.

        Yes it was, weren't you paying attention back then? Linus knew he needed a vcs, started git, Matt Mackall thought he could do a better job of it and said "ooh me too."

        Also you are talking about the original Bazaar project. Bzr was written from scratch.
        Bzr is Bazaar-NG, numnuts.

          Mercurial was started in parallel and announced a few days apart. Matt wasn't aware of Git when he started writing Mercurial.

          Also, the original Bazaar project was a fork of Arch but bzr-ng which was later renamed to bzr wasn't a fork but written from scratch and the original project is now called Baz. Your name calling doesn't change that.
