The most relevant point would be migrating from something like GitHub
to OpenJDK, which implies a radical shift in both development method
*and* source control system, which is the case for the project in
question afaik (JitWatch).

In general, I can also see why people would may want to stick with
BitBucket even if it uses mercurial like OpenJDK does.

If the project is new or doesn't have many active contributors then
doesn't really matter much, although the choice of version control
system may still be an issue. In practical terms it probably doesn't
matter that much because only an handful of project really have the
necessity to be part of the OpenJDK project, and they mostly are born
this way anyway, but I still think it's necessary to clarify though.
