Mercurial or Git?

(cross-posted to Twitter to ensure a fragmented conversation)

We’re likely to make the move from SVN to Mercurial or Git in the next few months, for at least a segment of our development at Crowd Favorite.

I’ve been doing a bit of reading on pros and cons, but would appreciate real-world experience from folks that have it. In particular with a focus on many projects sharing libraries as externals and being worked on in a team environment.

Being able to stick code we Open Source on Google Code would be nice with Mercurial, however Github seems like a pretty stable alternative.
