It looks empty but isn't. This is an unfortunate feature of bzr.

The actual repository is in a .bzr directory and because of the 
leading dot that is hidden. You can actually go into that directory:


but its still not any good to you because everything in that directory
is bzr's internal format.

The only way to get access to the code is use the bzr command line
program (ie apt-get install bzr) and then do:

    bzr get http://pkg-config.freedesktop.org/bzr/ pkg-config

Hope this helps.
