About the project

Olive aims to be a full-featured graphical frontend for Bazaar. That means all core functionality of Bazaar should be available in a user-friendly GUI. This goal is more or less accomplished in the development branch (read on for features). The current frontend uses GTK and it's written in Python. Olive is originally developed by SzilveszterFarkas (started during Google Summer of Code 2006). The code consists of two main parts: a backend and a frontend. The backend code wraps up bzrlib in a well-documented, easy-to-use way. The frontend mainly depends on this codebase.

Features
