I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "aren't devs". Do you mean
"aren't Twisted developers"? I don't see why someone who isn't a
developer would particularly care what development tools Twisted uses.

My personal preference would definitely be Launchpad+bzr >
Bitbucket+hg > Github+git. There are also a fair number of
Twisted-related projects already on Launchpad.

On the other hand, I'm not sure this is a constructive way to approach
this issue.
