Why making this so utterly complicated? Is there some *specific* thing
that makes your workflow based on launchpad? To be honest, I looked at
the launchpad pages and compared to most other projects there are really
few bugs und blueprints that would need to be moved to GNOME bugzilla
(or maybe the wiki). BTW; this workflow will be horrible for

As said before, if you use git-bzr for your internal workflow or
whatever, this is no problem, but not for public development.

In that case you would have to propose launchpad as external dependency
but I doubt this would make adaption any better.

I would really like you to simple move over to GNOME infrastructure and
pass this thread over to technical discussion.
