I wonder why you are not using the feeds provided by Launchpad:
http://feeds.launchpad.net/web2py/announcements.atom
http://feeds.launchpad.net/web2py/branches.atom
http://feeds.launchpad.net/web2py/latest-bugs.atom

how come?
I'm currently deciding on hosting for a project and was leaning
towards bitbucket (mercurial). What were the drawbacks of launchpad
and the expected advantages of mercurial?

Launchpad has a nice layout and nice features;

Bazaar has given me all sorts of problems - particularly behind a proxy...  inconsistent problems, and been there for a long (relatively - year?)  time.

Mercurial is realatively faster (think orders of magnitude);
Mercurial doesn't seem to give me the trouble bzr has.

Note:  Google code is adding mercurial support after Google I/O the end of this month (it's in preview now; search for the announcement).

Also - Python has made the decision to move to mercurial.

All of these various factors have weighed in over time.
