Changing Launchpad branch from Mirrored to Hosted —08 October 2010
I realized the
lp:senspodapp branch is not so good to have Mirrored. I set it to mirror from the location where I usually develop, but my development branch is not always 100% clean, and it’s better to keep official releases separate anyway. So I wanted to change it from Mirrored to Hosted, which would effectively mean that
lp:senspodapp gets updated when I explicitly do so, and I can get on with my development in my own branch http://bzr.titan2x.com/android/SenspodApp
So how to do it? Unfortunately Launchpad doesn’t have an option to change from Mirrored. The workaround is to register another branch, and switch over to it. It takes a couple of steps.
- Register a new branch, say “devel”, leave it empty (nothing pushed)
- Change the “trunk” series to use “devel”, the new empty branch. We cannot create the “main” branch as long as the “trunk” series uses it.
- Delete “main”
- Re-create “main”
- Change the “trunk” series to use “main”
- Push to “main”
