[crossfire] Launchpad (was Re: Backup(?) CVS via darcs)

Actually, forget tailor... launchpad is already set up to sync crossfire,
crossfire-client and crossfire-maps from cvs to bzr.  It doesn't have
arch, due to an oversight, but we can set that up ourselves easily.

Of course right now the syncs are a few weeks outdated, thanks to
sourceforge sucking.  And since launchpad only moved from Gnu Arch to bzr
recently, the only one which is actually synced is crossfire-client.  But
the three of them are already there, and launchpad can do the hard work
for us.  See here: https://launchpad.net/products?text=crossfire

Launchpad is Canonical's development portal thingie; it has hosting and
mirroring for bzr branches, plus a simple release planning system, plus
the only bug tracking system I know about that doesn't suck too much.  It
also has a neat i18n system to which I contributed in the beginning, but
we don't care about that, since we have no i18n.

I'd like to propose that we start using it for a few things.  Maybe
release planning is overkill, but at least the bug system is immensely
better than the sf offering.  And anyone with an account can host and
publish a bzr branch, so this would allow us to use bzr even if the
official development mainline remains in cvs.  If anyone who is currently
a cf developer registers a launchpad account, drop me a word by email or
irc and I'll add you to the team object on launchpad.

      So many of our dreams at first seem impossible,
       then they seem improbable, and then, when we
       summon the will, they soon become inevitable.
