Better reporting of codeshosting permission errors

Bug #93606 reported by Jonathan Lange on 2007-03-19
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Launchpad itself

Bug Description

Many users have difficulties using the bzr branch hosting service on Lanuchpad. One of the most common problems is not being a member of the team owning the branch.

The permission error for branch access should be improved (as previously mentioned on bug 33223 and 85392).
 * "You cannot write to branch ~foo/bar/baz because you are not foo:"
 * "You cannot write to branch ~foo/bar/baz because you are not a member of foo:"

It would be good if the sftp server could give useful error messages to let user diagnose and correct this common problem themselves.

This bug was split from bug #85392.

Setting to high priority, because bug #85392 is high.
