As I understand it, some people prefer Mercurial. Those projects tend to live on bitbucket. Git projects can live in either place although I suspect they tend to live on GitHub instead.
Is there really a need for this? Which parts are on bitbucket and which are on github?
PyPA is not really a “top down” organization in a way that we can just dictate what VCS (or VCS hosting) that the sub projects are allowed to use. The only rules PyPA can have are ones that all of the maintainers of the sub projects agree with. Thus, if we want to standardize around one VCS or VCS hosting location we’d need everyone who isn’t conforming to that to change, and if they are OK with changing there is nothing stopping them from moving right now and having a defacto standard immediately.
I just ask myself why this was not done from the start: find a consensus. Of course I see that it is very hard to change the current state.
It's a mess.
