Didn't follow the whole thread, but just my 2cent:

Considering the problems I had w/ when cloning the codebase (had put it
aside for quite a while, no idea if it's better now), my vote clearly
goes to git. IMHO, it's much easier to use, and there're also good
hosting sites.

Maybe we should consider cutting the history and some automatic
mirror/importer for the moz-central part.
