After the friendly and inclusive nature of the Ubuntu community, Launchpad and Bazzar really are responsible for deepening my involvement in development. I find LP much more welcoming and user-friendly than Debian’s BTS (though I really love and depend on PTS), Bugzilla, or Trac. It’s cross-project intregration is really a killer feature. Bazzar both introduced me to DVCS and convinced me of its supriority to Subversion. I also just find it so much more user-friendly than other solutions such as GIT (although admittedly I have no experience with Mercurial).
I’m glad that the platform that has encouraged me to contribute to open source has finally become open source itself (soyuz included!).Go Top
