Bug Description

Reported this on #is and poolie asked me to enter bug. Here is the stuck import:

Here is the discussion on #is:
<jcrigby> I seem to have a stuck branch update on lp:
<spm> hrm. it does too.
<spm> huh. that's special. doing a bzr info -v on it gives a rather funky error
<spm> poolie: ^^ before I go an do possible evil things to fix; did you want any debug?
<poolie> looking
<spm> ta mon
<poolie> please make a tarball if/before you whack it
<spm> will do
* babyface has quit (Leaving)
<spm> I need to afk for the school run in 3, so on return.
<poolie> i need to go to the physio in 10m too
<poolie> did you get "NoSuchFile: No such file: '/'
<poolie> " too?
<spm> yes
<mwhudson> exciting
<spm> it's an import, so curious where in the chain it broke; and how much blame we can drop on mwhudson
<spm> timing :-D
<mwhudson> oy
<poolie> mm i doubt i'm going to crack this before i have to go
<poolie> jcrigby, can you please file a bug against lp and subscibe me?
<poolie> or assign me
<mwhudson> it's the gather_stats verb that goes bang
<poolie> so nosmart+bzr://.... should work probably
<mwhudson> yeah
<mwhudson> well http worked
<mwhudson> so that will do i expect
<mwhudson> *too
<mwhudson> (it does)
<poolie> k, out to the doctor again
<poolie> biab
<mwhudson> and inevitably, if i clone it over nosmart+ i can run info -v over a local bzr:// connection

Do I need to leave the broken import in place or can I toss it and create a new one? I have created an alternative as a work around for the interim.

please rename it to eg 3.1-lt-omap-flattened.broken, and go ahead with your
other import

somehow it got unstuck, I assume that was human intervention on someones part, but now it is stuck again. I will try the rename and go on.
