I'm pro-mercurial too, but I discovered a plug-in to let hg talk
to git servers; it's working with the (experimental) dvcs.w3.org
git service.

It seems to work for my little toy CSS validator project, which
I wrote to public-qa-dev about recently.

The relevant part of the README is:

Source code and Version Control

To access the source code and project history using git__::

  $ git clone git://dvcs.w3.org/cssval

__ http://git-scm.com/

Or you can use mercurial with the `Hg-Git plugin`__::

  $ hg clone git://dvcs.w3.org/cssval

__ http://hg-git.github.com/

This project started Oct 11 2009, with mercurial revision
0:4ac7bd6d32f2, aka git commit

Thanks to bitbucket__ for hosting the project in early stages; the
cssval__ repository there may or may not be maintained.

Likewise, an experimental github mirror, Uniform-CSS-Validator__,
may or may not be maintained.
