I'm not sure what you're expecting an answer for exactly, but the problem in your comment appears to be a simple SSL connection timeout when doing bzr launchpad-login on your computer. Perhaps there is an issue with your Internet connection, ISP, or you are behind a proxy which might break SSL connections. It is hard to say, but the only real advice I can suggest is to try again.
