I would like to put my /etc directory iunder source control using bazaar.
Are there any gotchas in doing this. It seems safer to do it user an ordinary user rather than root - might there a be a problem with .bzr belonging to such a user.

You should look at using etckeeper, instead of trying to reinvent the wheel.
Here's a way using SVN and cron to manage /etc. I suppose it could be adapted.
