Canonical's Bazaar Still In Stagnant State
Phoronix: Canonical's Bazaar Still In Stagnant State
With Canonical allocating its resources elsewhere, the Bazaar revision control system has fallen stagnant...
I think mozilla still uses bzr
They originally picked it because it was more windows friendly than git.
If the system is finished and working why any more commits? If it's not broken don't fix it.
Michael is now officially on anti-Canonical vendetta.
When you have Git and Mercurial, Bazaar is simply redundant.
Bazaar has some important features:

- Commands which are understandable to the average human. Git requires several aliases to approach sensible behavior, encourages partial commits of uncompiled, untested code, and silently commits merges if there are no text conflicts (great recipe for breaking the build). Trying to learn Git commands from the manual is an impossible task. For example, "git push" is describes as "Update remote refs along with associated objects" - what the f*** is this supposed to mean???
Bazaar is IMO the best tool to use in environments such as scientific programming, where the collaborators are not willing to spend a week learning how to use Git without accidentally destroying their work, and you might have no control over your server.
From the main oss projects out there it seems only grub uses bzr. I would prefer when every project would use git.
Everyone seem to be all hyped about Git, and it seems everyone is using Git these days.
Is Git the best revision system ever?
Or is it just famous because Linus wrote it and Linux use it?
Well yeah, every modern source control system supports that. Distributed development is a fairly important feature these days.

The only reason this article exists is because he probably found himself surprised by the fact that Canonical seems to be moving so quickly with Mir as they are, and he even wrote an article about that very thing earlier today, only to finish off the article with saying that it couldn't possibly work anyway for no particular reason. And now, in order to save his face and insist that Canonical never finishes anything, he pulls up a project that is actually complete and needs no further maintenance, and which has really been replaced by Git in most respects anyway, and tries to use that as a justification for his viewpoint.
It's okay to criticize Canonical, but this isn't critique. This is slander.
EDIT: And I find it incredibly hypocritical coming from the guy who cried foul for Canonical slandering Wayland. It's one thing to be clueless, it's a completely different thing to be a deliberate hypocrite.
You must be kidding. I can only repeat the numbers, Bazaar has currently 2081 open bugs, 212 of them are marked as high importance bugs. No maintenance needed? I don't think so.
