From an end user's perspective neither one is complete.  Both often throw up 
tracebacks on 'unimplimented' stuff.  Admittedly HG this is getting fixed, 

All it really takes is somebody who cares about git and trac to carry on the 
efforts.  OLPC's efforts were more to embed gitweb into Trac instead of using 
Trac's browser.  While neat, not what we want.  But I'd rather not let what 
Trac does or does not currently support or fully support or more / less 
support dictate what SCM we choose to use in Fedora Infrastructure group.
