committ directly to branch when fixing a bug?

Asked by Jonathan Jesse on 2010-06-16

If you have direct access to commit to a branch is there a way to commit directly to the branch instead of creating a merge request?

Example: Today I was fixing a bug in kubuntu-docs and I have direct commit rights to lp:kubuntu-docs. When using ground control to fix a bug, I generated a merge request to fix the bug, instead of directly committing to the branch.

Am I doing somethng wrong or should I be able to commit directly via ground control instead of creating a merge request

Thanks,

Jonathan

Yes, you are supposed to be able to do it. There is however a bug that
prevents it from working correctly without editing a bzr file. IIRC
the bug has already been filed.

If you'd like to set the config directly while you wait for the fix, just change:

.bzr/branch/branch.conf

You'll find the parent and push branches there and simply change them to point directly at the branch. Make sure they're the same though.

Can you help with this problem?
