I admit I simply forgot I maintain this package as I have not needed it for over 5 years.

I do not think it is actually worth keeping it. If you wish to take over, please, feel free to do so. I am disowning the package now.

You'd need to constrain at least the runtime dependency on bzr (inside the package() function) to something like depends=('bzr<3').

Otherwise repo's Python 3 based breezy gets installed, which does not need this bisect module (that command is natively implemented in it).

Also, if you let it use breezy as a makedepend, it additionally needs python-dulwich during make (otherwise source checkout fails).

Do you consider this module to be worth keeping further, despite the discontinued bzr's successor, breezy already having this functionality?

Build (source checkout) has been failing since 2 years ago, when Arch dropped bzr and replaced it with the Python 3 based breezy. So by any indication, no one seems to be using this particular Python 2 module for the old bzr.
