I'm not sure that it needs to be either/or.  We have the 'openid' account secured on github, bitbucket, and google code.  Let individual working groups use whichever version control system they are most comfortable with.  Of course the final deliverables that come out of any working group should be in common location (such as http://openid.net/developers/specs/), but that doesn't necessarily mean that they all need to use the same technology to develop them.
