I'd go for at least some widely adopted DVCS (currently Git and Mercurial); wherever we want to move next then becomes a matter of discussion on the list. GitHub does not need to be an initial or final warehouse for GNUstep.

(Pet peeve: GitHub is too often mentioned when Git itself is what's necessary.)

Further comments to Gregory's original post:
0. GitHub has Mercurial support? If so, schweet. But maybe you're referring to hg-git on the client end?
1. That's a good reason to have a mirror there and possibly to accept patches through there... not necessarily for it to "officially" live there.
2. Do we want to do it through GitHub? Let's think about this. Gerrit is nice for code review.
3. I don't think that giving GNUstep content to GitHub is a good idea. 
4. This is a major reason for going to Git and having at least a mirror on GitHub.

If I were the first person to respond, I'd say "yes" to move to GitHub. This way, since Riccardo did raise some interesting points, I still say let's move to Git -- but taking into account Nikolaus's suggestion of having GitWeb or something similar hosting the official repository. That sounds really good.
