I share all concerns about baz's complexity. However, I would also
like to point out that the baz developers are incredibly helpful and
friendly and eager to listen to your feedback, concerns, wishes, or
anything else. I thus encourage everyone to come to
#bazaar/irc.debian.org with questions. From my experience, it's an
equally relaxed forum as #debian-women or this list. Bazaar is
complex, and it's not ready for prime time, but with every
additional user providing feedback, we'll be able to improve it more
and faster.

On a related note, you may have heard that I am getting more and
more interested in using bazaar for packaging[0]. If you are
struggling with that, I would be happy to discuss any issues, or
provide guidance. In the interest of others, maybe the best place to
ask these questions would be this list; please make sure to mention
my name in the post or else I may miss it.

Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
