Is launchpad what we need?

Asked by Corey Mitchell on 2011-08-19

I'm trying to wrap my head around the capabilities of bazaar and launchpad. I have a development team distributed internationally. Each location currently has their own subversion repository on a private server, which is not good. We're pretty set on migrating to bazaar due to the distributed nature. The question we're having right now is how to host the code. Ideally we would like a single secure place where everyone publishes their code. It seems like launchpad could work for this. However, I have some questions on capabilities that I haven't found the answers to reading the documentation.

1) We have many projects as a group. We'd like each developer/member to easily see all projects for the team regardless of whether they are contributing to that project. Is that possible?

2) We don't want our code published to the world, we'd like it to be private to our group. Is that possible?

3) What is the availability of launchpad? Could there be intermittent/scheduled downtime?

I apologize if these questions/answers have been published elsewhere, I haven't found them.

Yes. You can create a project group that contains all your projects.

2) We don't want our code published to the world, we'd like it to be private to our group. Is that possible?

Yes, but private branches and projects require a commercial subscription.

3) What is the availability of launchpad? Could there be intermittent/scheduled downtime?

Historically, we had one 90-minute scheduled downtime window each month. We now do zero-downtime deployments for many changes, and we are working on extending zero-downtime deployments that to all our changes.
