I would be much happier if libtiff was updated to use Mercurial (Hg) or Git because then every checkout would include full history and would serve as a backup of the master repository. I have a preference for Mercurial because it is easy to learn and relatively simple.

Fossil? - probably simpler to use than either Git or Hg.

While Fossil will of course work, it is a poor choice for a public project on the grounds of extreme obscurity.

The skill (and tool) base of Git is very substantial and that makes a difference to contributors and potential contributors.
