Hi Piero,

Please see comments in-line.

There has already been a small push on the infra-dev list for a move
to git and the ASF has a large number of projects being synched with a
mirror at GitHub [1].  So, from a purely political standpoint,
sticking with git would be the way to go.

Scott Chacon wrote a git plugin for mercurial [2] that would let you
interact with a git repository from within mercurial, too.  So, using
git as the canonical representation should make the most sense for
both git and mercurial fans alike.

I don't think this is the case any longer.  I'm pretty sure there's a
Windows client that doesn't require cygwin.  Additionally, there has
been a lot of progress on a TortoiseGit [3].
