Support for launchpad?

Is there support for launchpad or in the future any support for it? I've recently installed sourcetree for the git projects I'm going to move to this computer, but I have at least one project on launchpad. Thanks in advance for any help

Just to be clear, you can already use any git/hg host you like just by creating remotes pointing at the appropriate launchpad URLs (or using the ones that come with the repo if you import it). What you wouldn't have is support for displaying possible remote hosted repos in the Hosted Projects view. This is a convenience but doesn't stop you using any other remote system.

In future we may add support for a pluggable Hosted Projects API so that it's easier to incorporate other hosts into Hosted Projects.

Yeah but launchpad is bzr and I don't think sourcetree supports that yet. Plus at least for this one project I need bzr others I'll use github(I'm more used to get now), but do need bzr just this once and thought it might be a good time to suggest it.

Why? I don't see why it can't be added....

Ah, of course, sorry. Support for Bzr is extremely unlikely in the future I'm afraid.

Still it would be nice to have it just for those who do have to use it, too bad there's not a way to prove it'd be really useful, just thought it would be nice to have it just for the few....

It's technically possible of course. But it's a lot of effort for a system that very few people use compared to Git and even Mercurial, therefore the effort isn't really justified.
