Easier project configuration

Project Get Involved portlet Projects get an improved “Get Involved” portlet. This portlet provided links to create projects artefacts like bugs and branches. It was never clear though how to enable these links. Privileged users like project owners will see links to configure Launchpad applications. The portlet also call attention to applications that are not configured.

The first use of the not configured state is the project branch. Contributors cannot submit code if Launchpad does not know the series branch, and most importantly, communities like Ubuntu need access to the project’s focus of development. The new Configure (project|series) branch form allows you to setup an code import and link the branch to the series.
