It does appear that Canonical has stopped funding launchpad and bzr (and not because the projects are "done") but I don't fault them for it. They have invested considerably in both and neither have turned out to be the grand success they envisioned.
Which explains why the company is still in business. Turns out BitKeeper has features that git, hg, and bzr don't have, like the ability to lock a file for editing, which is important in large projects.Originally Posted by uid313
Also you are talking about the original Bazaar project. Bzr was written from scratch.
There is no separate team for GNU projects ready to take over maintenance when they are abandoned. It is all just the originals developes chosing to do their work under the GNU governance. It is the same with Apache or whatever else.

Bzr is Bazaar-NG, numnuts.Also you are talking about the original Bazaar project. Bzr was written from scratch.
Also, the original Bazaar project was a fork of Arch but bzr-ng which was later renamed to bzr wasn't a fork but written from scratch and the original project is now called Baz. Your name calling doesn't change that.
