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[0]. With the
hg-git[1] 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.

[0] 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).
