[seam-dev] [weld-dev] Mercurial vs GIT

I also just created a bitbucket account, which seems to offer everything that github does.
Francisco's article makes good reading, and especially as we are all used to SVN, SVN compatible commands are a good idea ;-)
Finally, migration to Mercurial looks possible from SVN, and tool support looks fine.

I opted to go with hg because I felt the docs were better (http://hgbook.red-bean.com/, for example) and the Windows support for hg was much better at the time (luckily, that's no longer an issue for me, as I'm not using Windows ATM :). For what it's worth, some people at my local JUG use git and have complained about the inconsistency between one command and another. I can neither confirm nor deny, as I've never used git in anger. I am, though, quite happy with Mercurial. Also, for what it's worth, it's my understanding that GlassFish (in addition to NetBeans, OpenJDK, etc) will be moving to hg at some point, so there are major projects on both systems.

I realize there may be concerns with kenai of various sorts, so, if that's not an option, bitbucket.org is one option for hosting projects. The Mercurial maintains a fairly lengthy list here: http://mercurial.selenic.com/wiki/MercurialHosting
