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.
