Bug Description

I recently went to make a daily build recipe for testtools. The project on Launchpad is linked to its source package, which has branches.

When composing a recipe, I would like to be pointed the source package branch if it exists. Perhaps it would also be useful to mention other branches used in other recipes for the branch we're coming from.

How do you envision this?

We could do something like have an expandable section below the text for "Possibly relevant branches..." (or something), and have links to series branches and package branches for the related package.

What do you think?

I think that's a great idea. As we discussed, the idea is to help
people who have no idea how awesome Launchpad is find out that we've
actually got branches for practically everything.

Rollback has landed in r12138, and there seems to be a bug in the qa-tagger that stops this from being deployed. Since everything up to 12138 is qa-ok, I am marking this as qa-ok.
