|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0003700: Bitbucket to drop Mercurial support|
|Description||(This issue affects both Zandronum and Doomseeker, and whatever solution is found for one project can probably be used for the other)|
That's a very short-term warning for the removal of all hg repos...
What happens from here? Move to GitHub/GitLab? Someone sets up hg.zandronum.com? What else?
I wouldn't call nearly a year short term.
As I stated in 0003701 this basically means that migrating to git is forced. We obviously have the ability to host the repo ourselves, but that would come with a ton of downsides such as making it more difficult to send pull requests.
The question becomes where to host the Git repo.

I think GitHub would probably be the better option, mainly due to familiarity: everyone is on GitHub already and knows how to use it, plus GZDoom and friends are there already. This also raises the point that GitHub's popularity means it may bring us some more contributors, but that's debatable...
I also generally prefer the GitHub interface over those of Gitlab and Bitbucket: Bitbucket especially just feels clunkier and more displeasing to use.
|Yeah if the goal is getting contributions, community involvement, etc. You should definitely choose Github. It's a no brainer IMHO. The only other reasonable alternative is Gitlab, but its main focus is self-hosting / companies / full development solutions (sort of like Atlassian).|

Though I have almost no contributions to Zandronum, I'm quickly mentioning what I said at 0003701: Service providers like GitHub, GitLab and Bitbucket are "incentivized to create a return for their investors" and doesn't create "a much healthier relationship between you and the service" (as quoted from sourcehut's billing FAQ).
GNU Savannah, sourcehut or self-hosting would be my preferred choices for any free software project.

There was also a great analogy from the Atlassian Community forums, to translate the bullshit in OP's link:
Quote from jakobkappel
|Hey I just wanted to remind you all you have around 2 months until the repos are removed. Is there anything planned about this?|
Yes, things are just moving really slowly, as usual.
We plan to stay on Mercurial, we're just evaluating hosting solution (Currently looking at OSDN as a potential host)
