In addition to my GitHub account ( https://github.com/shlomif ) I also have a
BitBucket account ( https://bitbucket.org/shlomif ) where I have some Mercurial
repositories in addition to Git repositories on both BitBucket and GitHub.
I still haven't fully gotten used to either Mercurial or Git - they both trip
me in different ways on occasion (but these occasions seem to have gotten
much rarer for both systems). I don't have a clear cut winner between GitHub
and BitBucket (I find the GitHub issue tracker to be incredibly bare bones and
lacking many important features, while the BitBucket issue tracker is much
better, but many other features are nicer on GitHub.).

Self hosting is always an option if you have the resources, but I tend to avoid
it for open source project hosting and other network-facing services because I
feel that I lack the discipline to keep these services up-to-date. Maybe you
are different, but it's up to you to decide.

Google Code is also an option.
