I think that's irrelevant. There is absolutely no reason that we should force 
all of the Enthought-hosted projects to move in sync. We would have reason if we 
were being asked to host a different centralized VCS with a complicated server, 
but hosting Mercurial or bzr is nearly trivial. We already do it for me:

The remaining thing we would have to support is the Trac integration. While not 
as trivial as simply hosting the repositories, it's not a very large commitment.
