README has wrong VCS default (should be bzr, not git)

Bug Description

/usr/share/doc/etckeeper/README says:

  Note that the default VCS is git

The actual default in /etc/etckeeper/etckeeper.conf seems to be bzr. Please can you tweak the README to match reality.

Unfortunately the above sentence from the README continues:

  and this tutorial assumes you're using it. Using other VCSes should be broadly similar.

So to be truthful the sentence needs to become a little awkward, perhaps something like:

  The default VCS in Ubuntu is bzr. This tutorial assumes you're using git. Using bzr (or any other supported VCS) should be broadly similar. If you would like to use git, edit the file /etc/etckeeper/etckeeper.conf to remove the # from the beginning of the line #VCS="git" and insert a # before VCS=bzr.

(Or rewrite the tutorial to be bzr-based. Or change the default to git, of course!)

Thanks for the bug report.

Ideal would indeed be to update the tutorial to use bzr.
