Failing import from Debian's Alioth Bzr

Asked by Andrew Starr-Bochicchio

The branch lp:~andrewsomething/imagination/debian is an import from

It has been marked as failing. The error is:

2012-11-23 19:09:14 INFO Starting job.
2012-11-23 19:09:14 INFO Getting exising bzr branch from central store.
2012-11-23 19:09:14 INFO [chan bzr SocketAsChannelAdapter] Opened sftp connection (server version 3)

I'm not sure why it's timing out. I can connect to it:

$ bzr info is permanently redirected to http+urllib://
Standalone branch (format: 2a)
  branch root: http+urllib://

Maybe it is the re-direct?

Unless someone knows better, could someone please set the import url point directly to the one?

Alioth had throttled anonscm HTTP access from Canonical's networks. That's fixed now, and the import works.
