I’m really enjoying Bazaar 2.0 as compared to GNU Arch. There’s a lot of things I could say about Bazaar 2.0 as version control, but let’s leave it as ah, that’s why I originally liked the idea of distributed version control.

Now that that’s out of the way, I have something more pressing to communicate! Bazaar 1.0 has a commandline program baz, pronounced like the first syllable of bazaar (I note in passing that until I saw that commandline, I thought that it was called ‘bizarre’ and am still disappointed). Bazaar 2.0 will have bzr. Now, people, you can’t seriously be expecting me to pronounce the latter as bazaar can you? C’mon, … try saying it. bzr. bzr. BZR. It doesn’t quite have the Australian neutral vowel in it, but I’m determined and ready to fight for it to be pronounced buzzer. You can have all kinds of really nerdy jokes about hitting the buzzer. Now get with the program.
