A better idea to commit is to: 

   (a) get the source via rsync, which'll get you the right timestamps,
       and probably be faster, viz:

       rsync -vzaP spohr:/org/bugs.debian.org/source/debbugs-source/mainline/ ./

   (b) push via bzr and rsync; first apt-get install bzrtools, then run

       bzr push spohr:/org/bugs.debian.org/source/debbugs-source/mainline

Sadly that screws up permissions a bit, but the way rsync works avoids
most of them being a problem. :-/ I wish we could get "umask 002"
by default on .debian.org boxes, the way it's always been on Debian
boxes... :)

There's probably magic bzr hooks you can use for that.
