Bazaar in Five Minutes -- corrections

Asked by rod boggess on 2011-06-20

Starting a New Project

Let’s suppose we want to store a new project under Bazaar. First, we’ll make a directory to hold all our work related to this project. We’ll make a repository directory, which means that the

Strike, "which means that the", and replace with something similar to the following:

... This is our repository. The repository is a directory that is under Bazaar version control from where developers can create branches to test development of specific features or, more generally, modifications to the working file set. After creating the repository, change to that directory, and create the projects main trunk. You can think of the trunk as the current working version of a solution or file. In this case, we're creating a trunk to initialize the project. This would be equivalent to revision zero, or the seed of the tree.

Now that we have the trunk, we need to move to that directory and literally seed the trunk with files. [NOTE: There is no adding of the initial file in this example.]

here are my proposed changes: https://code.launchpad.net/~mbp/bzr/doc/+merge/66592

please let us know if you spot anything else.

just so you know, the first commit is revision 1, and it's more accurate to say the trunk is just one especially important branch
