Bug Description

After reading various internal Canonical mailing lists, I decided to try to use 'bzr lp-propose'

  1. man bzr gives no hint of the option
  2. bzr lp-propose --help offers some guidance,

Therefore I tried some obvious guesses like:

  bzr lp-propose
  bzr lp-propose lp:~sladen/explicit-branch/

most of which produced variations on:

  "bzr: ERROR: Not a branch:"
  "bzr: ERROR: Source and target branches must be different."

Ideally the documentation in the manpage would give an idiot-compatible example for numpties like me.

Addendum for the information of fellow numpties; the following appears to have done something:

  bzr commit
  bzr push lp:~sladen/somewhere
  bzr lp-propose

of which the latter seems to implicitly choose the parent(?)/trunk.

(To me the explicit 'bzr push' seems to defeat the point?)
