I recall that Max once gave me a lot of reasons why bzr was preferred to git. That was a long time ago, so some of his objections may have been mitigated.

I wouldn't have thought that Mozilla had a presence, but it does, so I recommend hosting directly on It would be probably be easier to manage pull requests there.

FWIW, I think it is possible to configure to import from git directly, so folks would probably be able to pull bazaar updates from there.
