I and Jonathan Marsden try to keep up with them from
~pkg-crosswire-devel Debian/Ubuntu packaging team.

The mirrored bzr branches are read-only. If you have commit access to
svn you can $ bzr push svn://svn.example.com/trunk. And then it will
ask for login/password.

Anyone can create, commit and push bzr branches to launchad =)
