I'd like to use Bazaar distributed version control system and NetBeans. I was wondering if anybody is working on this
feature. I could help. I have basic Java skills and long experience in other projects. For this one I don't know were to
start. Could some one with good experience to guide me? I was thinking that good start will be the pluging for
Mercurial(Hg) because it is also DVCS.

I second this issue. DVCS are becoming widely used.
Someone may argue that bazaar is not so widely used with Java. That may be true, but don't forget that NetBeans now
support a whole range of other languages. Bazaar is for example very popular with Python and Launchpad. I would myself
use NetBeans as a Python IDE if it had integrated bazaar support. Currently I use other IDEs.
I've always been interested in giving bazaar a go, but the lack of support for it in NetBeans has been a bit of a showstopper for me. Sure, I can work the DCVS from cli or use other tools, but I like the power and flexibility of the NetBeans Mercurial integration and really wish there was something like it for bazaar.
well there is a start:
AFAIK, this is the only VCS which is able to track renamed directory paths.
Changing package paths is a common refactoring task in Java, so VCS support would be of big value.
