It depends. These are two different tools for two different operations.
E.g., IMNSHO you should merge cleanly rebased branches on the top of
your master.

Some people who love git, not all of them ...
http://luther.ceplovi.cz/git/ (these are my git repos).

And even if it was right, what’s your problem with it? That it improves
communication among contributors, or that it is proprietary (that’s my
problem, thus my own repos, but yes I have github account as well and I
maintain some projects there).

Prime example of git has not been the Linux kernel for many many years.
Mozilla Firefox OS (and many other their projects, yes, they used to be
100% Mercurial shop) https://github.com/mozilla/ , Gnome
https://git.gnome.org/browse/ , KDE https://projects.kde.org/projects
and XFCE for good measure http://git.xfce.org/, all projects by
Freedesktop http://cgit.freedesktop.org/ , Fedora repos
http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/cgit/ , OpenSUSE
https://gitorious.org/opensuse (and other large projects on Gitorious
https://gitorious.org/projects ). Some of them use email lists for
communicating, some use merge/pull requests.

However, the general trend seems to be quite clear.
