I do think the hosting matters, in the sense of having an effect.
Developers these days are much more oriented around the PR model than
iterated list submissions.  And you're right about Mercurial being
a Betamax.  At least two of us are mercurial contributors.  We're
more comfortable with hg, and we find it more capable -- or at least
easier to get things done in.  Git makes anything above basic use
pretty pointlessly difficult.  I have often converted repos to hg to do
anything hard and convert back to git when done. :p

But that said -- we've talked about all this internally, and we're still
discussing whether to switch to VHS.  It will be painful, but it might
be the right choice.
