+(To know whether you have bzr-git, type "bzr plugins".)
+Next, clone the Gawk git repository with this command:
+  bzr git-import git:// gawk
+This will create a directory called 'gawk' with meta-data of the
+repository, but without any working trees.  To checkout the files,
+chdir to that directory and type:
+  bzr checkout
+This will checkout the files for the default branch.  To see the list

+  bzr branches
+To switch to another branch, type
+  bzr switch --force BRANCH

+If you want to update several branches, "bzr switch" to each one in
+turn, followed by "bzr pull" to sync the branch.
