In my last post, I talked about using Bazaar on Subversion repositories. Soon afterward, David Rubin asked me in IRC if I can do the standard branching and merging on a Bazaar working copy of a Subversion repository, and how easy it is.
The answer is, "Yes, very easy." In fact, you don't even need to care that it is from a Subversion repository. For instance:
@:~$ bzr checkout https+urllib://svn.domain.com/svnroot/project/trunk trunk @:~$ bzr branch trunk newfeature @:~$ cd newfeature [... do some stuff ...] @:~$ bzr commit @:~$ cd ../trunk @:~$ bzr merge ../newfeature @:~$ bzr commit
