some advices about Launchpad itself

Asked by snowdream on 2011-05-04

i think Launchpad itself is very userful for devlopers to manage projects.
but it can be better.

i want to give some advices about it.
1、It is so diffult for me to install on a web server.
is it can be a software package(like wordpress etc,packaged with deb.)

2、There is only one language for Launchpad itself.
i wish i can see the branch with more languages in the future.

3、as i know,git is not supported in the Launchpad.
if it can be supported in the future?

1. Launchpad is designed connect many different open source projects and packages. It needs to be a centralized service in order to do that. So we recommend using the instance at launchpad.net, not installing it on your own web server.

2. There has been some discussion of this, but it is not on the roadmap: https://dev.launchpad.net/RoadMap

3. We want our users to only need one VCS in order to use Launchpad. We've chosen Bazaar for that purpose, and shaped Bazaar to work well with Launchpad. We do not plan to support git at present, but you can import git branches into Launchpad as Bazaar branches.
