That is correct, the only submodule is jump.el which isn't required for
normal use, but is included for navigation of the testing framework.
See the contents of the .gitmodules file in the Org-mode directory

| [submodule "testing/jump"]
| 	path = testing/jump
| 	url = git://github.com/eschulte/jump.el.git

Not that I can think of.

Is it possible to simply ignore the jump submodule (maybe skip that
commit) and then move forward with bzr synchronization.  There's no need
to include jump in the bzr repository as it's entirely optional and is
only needed for writing/using the test suite (which doesn't happen that
frequently anyways).

If there is no way to skip that commit on the bzr-synchronization side,
it shouldn't be difficult to create an alternate git repository which
mirrors the main repo but skips the submodule commit.  Once this is
setup the bzr repository could track this alternate git repository.

Hope this helps -- Eric
