I have a strong aversion against bzr; I'm using git at work and I'm
loving it, however, since I am inactive anyways, I don't really have the
decision power, so just keep it in mind.

It could be that alioth also has infrastructure to support bzr, but I'm
not sure about it (I know for sure, however, that a bzr-buildpackage
variant does exist although I've never ever tried it out).

I am still an admin of pkg-mc at alioth, so I can add your account to
the team if needed.

If there are going to be some packaging questions coming up I will try
to make some time to help, although I'm not an expert on the subject.

Sincerely yours,
