Fortunately, you don't have to. Even though I've never installed git on any of
my systems, I've just migrated my Mercurial projects to github. With the
hg-git plugin (developed by github), it's easy to use Mercurial for hacking
and push my work back to github. I'm sure you could do the same when IPython
finishes its migration.
 FWIW, I also have mirrors on bitbucket (a service catering directly to
Mercurial). I keep the mirrors in sync with the following in a clone's hgrc:
changegroup.bitbucket = hg push bitbucket
changegroup.github = hg push github
When I push to the clone, it in turn sends the changes to bitbucket and
github (the actual paths are defined elsewhere in the hgrc).
