Bzr Explorer: Initialize dialog

Asked by Alok on 2010-03-17

I am new to Bazaar and am interested in using distributed workflow (decentralized with shared mainline). I read the documentation for Bzr explorer here:

    http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/visual-tour-windows.html#initialize

where it talks about feature branches, colocated branches, etc.

I am unable to map which one is which amongst the workflows described here:

    http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/bzr.2.1/en/user-guide/bazaar_workflows.html

Question 2: If I chose decentralized with shared mainline workflow now, would I be able to change it to decentralized with gatekeeper later?

Thanks

Hi,

I'd use feature branches and bind the trunk branch with the central
master location. By the way, the visual tour should give you a taste of
the features available but it doesn't really explain how to put those
features together. Some better documentation is on it's way, e.g. see
http://doc.bazaar.canonical.com/explorer/en/guide/processes/starting_a_project.html
  - one section is the (under construction) Desktop Guide.

Yes.
