In fact, at this point of time there is no support for most free
distributed SCMs (git, bazar, bazar ng, darcs, monotone, mercurial

to rule out all of them.

Lack of support in Savannah should be an issue, though.

See http://git.sv.gnu.org/gitweb.

As for personal experiences, we tried some things for LilyPond, and I have the following to add

 - I concur with Juliusz that using centralized VC today is a bad move

- GIT: steep learning curve, but it also has a clear model that makes it very predictable to determine whether something is possible or not. There is also a lot of tool support.

- darcs: a clear model from theoretical point of view, but we could never get the hang of the user interface, syncing was too slow for a serious project.
