I'm trying to bootstrap my build but I'm lost in how to achieve this. I have my sources stored in a bzr repository so I'm using the bzr4j plugin (http://code.google.com/p/bzr4j/) as my VCS plugin. While this works the problem is that this plugin only supports checkouts on the server but not on the build agent. Because my build requires access to the VCS meta data (revision numbers etc.) I need to bootstrap my build in order to have a proper checkout. I've only found one post on this forum (http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5240683#5240683) which describes a similar problem but unfortunately there's no good explanation of how to achieve the bootstrap.
So does anybody have any suggestions on how to set this up? To make things more exciting I'm using a powershell script via the simple command runner
