Is there a way to make LP default to showing me git repos?

Asked by Jeff Lane on 2020-03-02

Since LP has supported Git for some time now, and most projects have moved to using Git over Bazaar, or more specifically ALL my projects are now git based, not bzr, is there some way to tell LP to always show me the git trees?

When I go here:

I would like for git to actually send me here:

by default and make viewing bzr repos secondary.

It would be nice if there was some sort of radio button or boolean flag I could check to say "Default to +git when viewing code"

It's not yet possible. I thought there was a bug report, but I don't see one. Please use the "Create bug report" option on this question.

(I'd suggest focusing on the problem rather than the solution for the purpose of a bug report; we might want to take a different approach, such as merging bzr and git onto a single page for the purpose of the per-person code index.)

Thanks Colin, Bug filed, feel free to refine the summary if necessary. I wanted to check first just to be sure I hadn't missed a setting somewhere.

Why not just show all the repos regardless of format?

@sabdfl: Yep, that's what I suggested in "merging bzr and git onto a single page" - I think that's probably the right answer here.
