Bug Description

chrispitzer: i'm having problems with bzr upload. when I try to upload a repo, i get bzr: ERROR: Invalid url supplied to transport: "README.txt"
chrispitzer: what's up - is this a permissions issue or something...?
lifeless: what url are you giving bzr upload to push to?
chrispitzer: bzr upload bzr+ssh://my.server.com/srv/foo
chrispitzer: it should be using the user 'chris' just like when i ssh in.
poolie: this sounds familiar
poolie: is there a backtrace in .bzr.log?
chrispitzer: when i ssh in I can make files in that folder easily
poolie: chrispitzer: so it looks like a bug or an incompatibility between bzr and the upload plugin
poolie: i assume you do actually want the tree contents uploaded?
poolie: i mean, that you want a full checkout on the server
chrispitzer: yea
chrispitzer: it works great for a bunch of sites I use it on... bzr upload that is.
chrispitzer: it just doesn't want to work this time.
chrispitzer: *shrug* time to get on with my life I guess. :P
16:55
chrispitzer: thanks anyway - later
chrispitzer left the room.

If bzr is available on the remote site, there is no point in using upload,
https://edge.launchpad.net/bzr-push-and-update is far more appropriate (and works today),
and 'bzr push' itself should populate the working tree (but I'm not sure the smart server does that today).

upload is mostly targeted at remote sites where bzr can't be installed and will never be as smart
as the two solutions above.

Well, there are people who would have bzr on the remote server, but want
to not upload the history to their http site. (So they don't have to
worry as much about disabling download of the history.)

That's about the only situation I can think of.

Right. So they want to use bzr but without the bzr data (.bzr directory).

Given that bzr-upload do all the heavy work on the *client* and
the smart server is about taking advantage of the remote
knowledge of the branch, either you use bzr-upload and 'sftp://'
(i.e. not 'bzr+ssh://') OR you use bzr with its data (but if you
don't want the '.bzr' in your published directory, you're back to
square one).

So, I say this bug is about pointing people in the right
direction if they try to use bzr+xxx protocol.
