All Ubuntu Overview, Ubuntu Main Overview

You are looking at information on the Bazaar importer system that serves Ubuntu Distributed Development. It's hoped that you won't have to care about the existence of this, but things don't always work out that way.

It is expected that uploads appear in the branches in less than 30 minutes, if it takes longer then something is up and this page should tell you why. To discuss issues or to ask for a package to be looked at please use our mailing list

The scripts used to import the packages are available from a bzr branch. If you encounter issues, please file bugs. If you're curious, a detailed explanation about how it works is documented in the UnderTheHood part of the wiki.
