Thanks for the explanation of bzr. I'd like to give it a try on
another project. How did you create the repository at
repository? Is this bzr mirror of the numpy svn repository
automatically updated to follow the commits to the numpy svn

Also, what tool was used to draw the DAG in the screenshot? The
screenshot was very helpful.
