For what it's worth, the Python core developers have selected Mercurial. 
I personally use git and love it. Most open-source people seem to use 
one or the other of the two. They're pretty similar in most ways.

Look at the big two sites for open-source repositories -- github and 
bitbucket. One's git, the other Mercurial. I don't think you can go 
wrong picking either one.
