I can't speak for Git nor Mercurial, but should you eventually decide
for Git, I'd like to ask and suggest for GitHub not to be used.

GitHub has some serious issues which make it a poor choice, notably
being partly unusable without non-libre software. Please see GNU
Ethical Repository Criteria Evaluations at the link below.

Instead I recommend for either GitLab¹ or NotABug² to be used, both of
which show to care about libre software, with the former being well-
known enough to rival GitHub's fame, should that be a concern for you.
