A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
Judging by the icons on http://bazaar.canonical.com/en/ it looks like MySQL and GNU Emacs are the biggest bzr projects, but they're miniscule by KDE/Gnome/Moz/etc standards.
Does bzr have a win that's not shown in those icons?
A proposed Subversion vision and roadmap

Launchpad with bzr as a deployment is more interesting than the size of the source code of launchpad itself. It runs (taken from their frontpage) more than 17.000 projects, so there are many bzr users.

I guess the biggest project is Ubuntu, but I'm sure they do not use one shared repository.

They are nice guys who behave friendly.

How many projects are the on repo.or.cz, gitorius, github, codaset, under git at Sourceforge and similar sites? Just github claims some 150,000 public repositories! This surely dwarfs any bzr stuff on Launchpad...

That wasn't the question, and I'm not talking about X having the most users or Y having the hugest deployment. The root of this discussion was the question what may be the second mentioned dvcs. I'm sure it's mercurial, but it's important to see that bzr nonetheless has a big userbase.

Funny to see that always someone needs to state that he has the biggest.
We can all hope that svn won't dwarf anything else with it's again bigger userbase ;)
