Bazaar and Ubuntu Membership

Yesterday, I went before the Americas Regional Membership Board for Ubuntu membership. Everything went really well and I was accepted as a Ubuntu member. As an interesting side effect I decided to change my launchpad login. “Why?’, you might ask. Well, one of the benefits of becoming a Ubuntu member is a email redirect from ubuntu.com . The format for ubunto email addresses is your_launchpad_id@ubuntu.com .  My chosen moniker had already been taken when I registered my Launchpad account so that would have left me with a email address that doesn’t follow the RFCs. So I made the brilliant decision to change my Launchpad ID.

Bottom line is if you change your Launchpad ID you’ll need to fix your bazaar branches. You’ll need to go into the hidden .bzr directory for each bzr branch and edit branch/branch.conf . Replace your old ID with the new one in the appropriate lines.
