But I would like to note that exploded repos (or source-git repos)
have at least two other advantages.
1) they consume less space than tarballs for each version because
objects in git repo are deduplicated
2) instead of downloading/uploading tarballs, you can just do
something like: git pull --rebase upstream master; git push
Just a note that this is not something you can do today since a rebase rewrite
history, so you would have to do `git push --force` which isn't allowed
So if we were to move forward with this model, we will need to find a solution
for the question that has led us to forbid force pushes until now.
