Gnome Git has increasingly become the standard distributed source code management tool for free and open source software projects with the likes of Xorg, Samba, WINE, Perl and Ruby on Rails using it already. GNOME has now joined the Git bandwagon. A survey among GNOME contributors showed Git to be by far the most popular choice. Developers Behdad Esfahbod, Kristian Høgsberg, Owen Taylor, and Federico MenaQuintero and a number of volunteers formed a team and have helped migrate all the GNOME projects to Git. They have published the details of the migration.

No one of course - except that you’re required to use bzr if you want code hosted there.

Know of any other bzr hosters like github/gitorious?

Well.... I know from the newsletter I got from sf that they will add bzr support (and git as well... if I'm not wrong).

Anyway.. plugins can make up the "glue" if a project is not using bzr yet you want to use it.... so I don't think it's such a hurdle anyway.

Anyone with an apache/lighttpd/whatever server. You can bzr pull from anywhere through http, Bzr code hosting doesn't require anything else than SSH or a regular web server. (and if you want to be fancy, I guess you can slap Loggerhead on it)

Now, probably that git and mercurial can do this too. I just thought I'd mention that this whole idea of needing launchpad/sourceforge/google code/savannah/github to actually host your project's code seems moot to me. In my case, I simply push my stuff in http://code.ecchi.ca and anyone can pull from it. Just my 2¢.
