I'm fine with anything (staying as is, or moving to Mercurial or git), with
a preference for moving to a new system (and a slight preference toward
Mercurial, based on the reasons outlined as well as using it recently
hacking at Prosody and a few of its dependencies)

That, and enough Hg<>Git conversion projects exist that contributors who
would rather use Git should have an easier time of it (I could probably be
convinced into setting up a cron job to automate an hg fast-export | git
fast-import repo)
