To add my view to the comments of Fernando and Brian, I am _very_ happy
with the workflow, and a bit disappointed by the usability of launchpad.
Hopefully it will get better.

All in all I don't regret the shift at all. However, I am a bit worried
we might loose developpers, and I am not encouraging big projects like
numpy or scipy to do the shift yet.

My two cents,

Gaël
