Hi Juan Pablo,

Please take look to

To install xmloutput in OS X, the easies way is to directly branch it inside ~/.bazaar/plugins:
bzr branch lp:bzr-xmloutput ~/.bazaar/plugins/xmloutput

I am using Bazaar 2.1.1 application bundle for Python 2.6.
It has xmloutput installed by default.

'bzr plugins -v' yields:

xmloutput 0.8.6
    This plugin adds an option (--xml) to log and provides an xml version of some builtin commands.

I do not get any output from Eclipse when running commands such as Team -> Status, which appears to execute xmlstatus.
The console window shows:
    Executing: xmlstatus src/

but no other output.

This Bazaar installation setup should work ok, shouldn't it ??

When I run it manually it seems ok.

$ bzr xmlstatus src/
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><status workingtree_root="/Users/brendan/Documents/workspace/yyy/"><modified><file fid="">src/</file></modified></status>

Any ideas why it doesn't work within Eclipse ??

Thanks, Brendan.

HI Brendan,

I think you need to install latest trunk of xmloutput ( as 0.8.6 is incompatible with 2.1.1 due to a change in the way output is handled.

How do I get the latest trunk? There is no download button on the 0.8.7 page.

Hi Marshall,

The easiest way to install the plugin without messing with the system wide install is to execute from a terminal:

mkdir -p ~/.bazaar/plugins/; bzr branch lp:xmloutput ~/.bazaar/plugins/xmloutput
