For some reason, bzr-gtk 0.100.0 has no manual page and the supplied
shell scripts abort with exceptions. But "bzr vis(ualize)" actually does

There is a newer version of bzr-viz (two even), 0.104.0 (according to; released on 2012-04-10) but the "project
homepage" at only knows up to
0.103.0 (and the download links are all dead).

According, too, to that page, these plugins work (at best) with bzr up
to 2.5, and we already had bzr 2.6 in pkgsrc (which was very outdated

I have updated bzr itself already to 2.7.0 (from 15-Feb-2016).
Bazaar itself seems dead, if you look at releases, but there is activity
in a "friendly fork" called brz (Breezy)
so there may be hope for it. (And it is based on python 3)

I could update bzr-gtk to said version 0.104.0 and it partially works;
it seems to fail in different places than 0.100.0 which we have now.
Shall I do that?
