Automatic BugBranch Links

Registered by James Henstridge

Launchpad currently has support for associating a Bazaar branch with a particular bug. This requires that the (a) make the fix, (b) register their branch or publish it on the supermirror, (c) go to the bug page and add the branch reference.

This model could be simplified by allowing the user to add an annotation to their branch that is detected by Launchpad when it scans their branch.

Whiteboard

The first stage of this is implemented and waiting for review. Next action is to split the spec up into a few minispecs: automatically closing bugtasks, improving BugBranch metadata, specifying states other than 'fixes' and maybe others.
