Arch repository support
|Reported by:||Owned by:||Christopher Lenz|
It'd be fantastic if arch support could be added to the repository browser. I realize this is a huge undertaking, and not likely to be considered, but I thought I'd throw it out anyway. There are some python bindings for arch already (http://ddaa.net/pyarch.html).

Of course, these days, it seems like most of the development effort (at least for python bindings) is going into
bazaar, a fork of arch. The python bindings for baz are at the same site: http://ddaa.net/pybaz.html

FYI, Arch is mostly dead. Tom Lord has retired from tla, and bazaar v1 (aka baz) is being replaced by bazaar-ng (aka bzr, what will become 'bazaar v2'), a ground-up rewrite and rethink based on the lessons from Arch and other later generation VCS tools. Bzr is written in Python and is under *very* active and well-managed development. More info on Bazaar-ng is available at http://www.bazaar-ng.org/.
FWIW, all bzr functionality is exposed through a python module called bzrlib; the bzr command line utility is a front-end to this library. This should significantly ease Trac integration.

There is a plugin in development for Bazaar2 (aka bazaar-NG, aka bzr):

Yep, so maybe Arch is dead. Anyway, this should be done as a plugin. See VersioningSystemBackend.
I would just like to say that I would be happy to see this improvement as well.
