Fedora keeps up.. but you then need to keep up with Fedora as well with
new full OS releases every 6 months..

1. Upgrade bzr to a supported release.

2. Anywhere in the repository, run "bzr upgrade" and go out for lunch.
Hopefully done when you come back, otherwise go directly to coffiebreak
until done..

Actually the 2 above is a little pessimistic. You can continue working
in an old repository just fine until the upgrade is done provided you do
the upgrade in a new path/location. Pushing from an old repository to 2a
works fine, only gets a little tricky if there is merges needing to be
done due to changes in both.. (you then need to push to a new branch in
2a and merge from there)
