There once was a biz called Bitbucket, that told Mercurial to suck it. Now devs are dejected, their code soon ejected

Re: That was a close call.

Our company was super paranoid about cloud hosting. When I moved to Git I used Gitolite but they later moved to an open source version of GitLab running on their own server.

About the only downside of Git, but this applies to Mercurial too is its great for source code but no damned good for binaries or documents. You can't merge those things very easily and a repo containing a lot of binaries soon bloats out of control. For docs we use subversion with binaries stored in nexus.
