I think the most important thing (other than compatibility) is
that you use something that you work well with. Sure a lot of these
VCS systems have advantages over the other; however, space is cheap --
git packs vs. mercurials way of packing is a minor detail compared to
how useful the vcs is to you.
That said I've used git, hg, and svn for freebsd development and
use them extensively all over. In fact I've just finished a port of
hg and hg-git (allows you to use hg to maintain a git repository) and
find that its a very nice way to control all of my repositories with
I think the only real way to do development that you plan to try to
merge is with freebsd-subversion; however, I'm sure there are people
with varying views of this sentiment. Both git and hg have svn
integration, so it really is up to you -- and if some functionality is
missing -- you can always add it ;)
have a good day and respectfully,
