Does anyone have experience with a private Launchpad instance?
Has somebody already installed and run launchpad on its own server? I’d like advice as I wasn’t able to find any on the web. Besides, the official team gives scary remarks on having its own launchpad. They also say that a lot of administration scripts aren’t included in the distributed sources and that the user has to reinvent them by himself (then I figured they actually don’t want anybody to have its own).
Although, I’m keen to have mine, it’s for one private project developed by 2 to 3 coders. I’m going to rent a dedicated server with the appropriate Ubuntu server. But before I do so, I’d like to know:
If I install one instance and then keep using that specific stable version (I’m sure we won’t need to upgrade and sync with the official launchpad upstream at all) do I take huge risks like losing all data?
Does it crash sometimes?
Does it require the development of plenty admin. scripts?
Is the setup and initial configuration hard (or not yet documented)?
If you were me, and would like to work with Bazaar, what other project management platform would you go for?
How’s launchpad’s backup system?

I do not think that there is anyone using Launchpad other than Ubuntu. If you wonder why I say this, please check https://bugs.launchpad.net/launchpad/+bug/786212
You can use sloecode for hosting bazaar branches and as andrewsomething said you can use loggerhead for a web view of the code. Another option to consider is fusionforge.org I think on Ubuntu you can apt-get that these days.
