Do we have another repo that we can use?

The only practical problem that I know of is that if one tells Git to complain about the mistaken format, it'll complain. I suppose that a future version of Git could drop support for the mistaken format, but I view that as unlikely; and if it does happen we can work around the problem then.

It's not a question of whether to use Git or not, or whether to use another copy of the repository or not. Any simple Git clone of the current repository will have the same problem. Converting to any other repository format (e.g., Bzr) would be equivalent to converting to current Git format; either action would work around the problem equally well. Either action would also be a hassle, though, which is why we haven't done it.
