I definitely wrote git-hg for the purpose of checking out a mercurial
repo so I can develop locally against it with git and then submit
patches. Getting push support was never really a priority for me.
Someone did eventually contribute some mechanism for pushing things
back in a pull request, so I merged it in. I occasionally get pull
requests for minor things around push, so it seems like at least a few
people are using it.

The way to get proper push support would be to use the hg-git
extension. The git-hg-again project uses that, and if I had some time
I'd love to move git-hg over to that approach as well. Patches
welcome. Alternatively, you can always https://www.gittip.com/cosmin/
