vim community repositories

I and ZyX (and Shougo?) are maintaining http://bitbucket.org/vimcommunity The reason to have a "community" maintained orginization like thing is that individuals can go on holidays (or drop out) without affecting the overall community. Eg if an author of a github account vanishes (for whatever reason) it usually takes a long time to find out for, and tell people about new upstreams. Having many maintainers leads to better code and better service.

If you want to join just contact MarcWeber by mail or on irc.freenode (or ZyX).

Bitbucket pros:

Github pros:

So which one is better? Is Vim using mercurial as strong reason (there are two git mirrors @ github)
