Link to from project branch listing page

Bug #306569 reported by Barry Warsaw on 2008-12-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

A user on #launchpad reported that it was difficult to find information on
using bzr from several pages on Launchpad. For example

This page (and ones like it) say:

"You can browse the source code for the development focus branch or get a copy
of the branch using the command: bzr branch lp:networkedgraphs" but there is
no explanation of what 'bzr' is or how to get it if your OS doesn't provide it
by default (specific example: the user is on Mac OS X).

The user's suggestion is that the word 'bzr' should be linked to more
information on Bazaar. I suggest it link to

There may be more places where this helpful informational link could be added.

I actually agree that the explanation on how to perform certain actions could/should be backed up with at the very least links to

I'm going to go through tomorrow and work out where the information is needed the most.

Looking through:

code.lpdomain/<project> on a fresh project (unconfigured code hosting) links to which is the information from the start.
code.lpdomain/<project> on a project that has a branch set up would be best to either link to the same place, or

code.lpdomain/~<user>/<project>/<branchname> has the command for branching/pushing but no other details

I've got a feeling in this case (and other similar spots), that the standard 'Code' page should be linked. At the same time, and the subpages, could also be better linked (maybe a template on the right hand side where the contents list is) to make navigation easier to go along with an update.
