That sounds reasonable to me ...

My 'vote' as the sensible thing to do for GNUstep

1. move back to savannah just to be on the main gnu system again.
2. use  Hg as the primary system and make sure it's sync'ed to at least one 
other site to we can work if one site goes down.
3. by all means mirror to github and bitbucket

And now some crazy throwing ideas in the air .,,,
I like the sound of fossil ... I wonder if we can play with that too.
Is it madness to think about the possibility of automatic syncing back and 
forth between mercurial and fossil? Does one have to be 'master', or can we do 
two-way syncs? Maybe we could have:
official mercurial repository on savannah
git and svn mirrors ...  so people can download the code using the system of 
their choice
fossil for experimentation ... to see if we'd rather use that in practice if we 
liked it then we might move over to it at some point.
