Gobby notes from UDS-L:

bazaar is awesome: easy to use

changelog merging should be implemented, code is available, needs to be added to merge-package

merge-package blew up with "unable to merge upstream": improve the error message
libdbd-mysql-perl <- investigate

lp:debian/package resolves to testing because testing is the "Current Development Series"
of Debian. This could be changed to sid if we want to. Doing it after lucid would be
good as we are currently syncing from testing.

Also adding "symlinks" for
lp:debian/testing/package to lp:debian/squeeze/package would be useful.

People have bad experiences with having the branches up to date. This is probably
the bzr importer failing.

What does the "mark-uploaded" command do? Tag the branch with the version number. Not
critical to do

(?)
