Once the branch is submitted to Launchpad, it is also possible to
create a Merge Proposal, which is a step up from a patch. Reviewers
can see a live diff on the Merge Proposal that gets updated every time
you do a new 'push'. Merge Proposals also have their own state.

There's a dashboard for keeping track of pending and approved Merge
Proposals, eg:


(the same exists for users: https://launchpad.net/~sidnei/+activereviews)

If you have bzrtools installed, you can use the 'bzr lp-submit'
command to create a Merge Proposal from the command line, IIRC.

It might seem like extra work at first, but once you get used to using
Merge Proposals to track work that's pending a merge it pays off very

That's how I work too, even with branches stored in bzr, by having a
'trunk' branch that is bound it saves you a few steps when merging
work back into the main tree. For people that prefer to be really
explicit, you can use 'bzr branch svn+ssh://...' instead of 'bzr
checkout' to create an unbound branch by default. You can also use
'bzr bind' and 'bzr unbind' to switch between bound and unbound.
