If you don't have write privileges on bzr.openpetra.org you can also commit to launchpad. This can be done the following way:

  • Create a public and private key on launchpad. This is explained here. It is quite important to execute pageant and to load the private key into pageant.
  • In your bazaar, you need to tell your launchpad username, on the command line run bzr launchpad-login USERNAME. I have not found a place in the GUI to do this.

If you're using the bazaar GUI you can do this the following way: Go to the menu point Bazaar -> Start -> Checkout. Enter branch source and local directory: Copy the command that then appears below into the pasteboard. Open the bazaar command line, change to your bazaar directory and paste the saved command into it. Delete "--lightweight" and execute the command. The command then would be fe.

 bzr checkout http://bzr.openpetra.org:8008/website/trunk D:\openPetra.org-Files3\bzr\website-launchpad\trunk
  • In your local working tree, push to Launchpad which will create a new branch there: lp:~USERNAME/openpetraorg/BRANCH_NAME, eg. lp:~jomammele/openpetraorg/website-spanish.
  • Then you switch your local working tree to lp:~USERNAME/openpetraorg/BRANCH_NAME. This means that all your future commits will go to your branch at Launchpad.
  • Now you can add files and change existing files, and commit them to your branch at Launchpad.
  • If you want your changes to be merged into the OpenPetra bzr, tell a core developer the URL of your branch. It is recommended to have small branches for each feature that you want to go upstream. You will not be able to reuse a branch, after it has been merged into openpetra trunk, since we want to avoid criss cross merges etc.

If you get an unlock error-message execute a

 bzr break-lock bzr+ssh://bazaar.launchpad.net/~jomammele/openpetraorg/website-spanish/
