I fully agree with Fawzi.

I don't want to enter in personal discussions. Free to work with bazaar 
if you like.
Can I just suggest you something quite naive for the next time?
Install bazaar on your machine and use it. No need to have an on-line 
service.. which really looks like a
split project.

More important, as a sort of respect for the people that put their time 
on this project and make available instantly the products
of their work.. these kinds of  "operations" must be discussed and 
agreed by the majority of people regularly involved into it.
Maybe you are used to do what you want.. fine as long as you don't 
interfere with the work that for several years, several people have 
dedicated to this project (for some 10 years and for some less..).
