If these are just archives, why not rename the .git things to .gat or something. Then, if you ever need to unarchive for use, restore the correct name.

A good idea. That does seem to work.

In my earlier experimentation I tried temporarily removing the ".git" folder but I didn't think to rename it. Doh. And, indeed, renaming it does allow the folder in which it lives to be indexed and searched. So it seems from this that it is a hardcoded issue to do with ".git" folders.

To be fair, I expect they will fix it, if only because it will annoy their own in-house users of Git! Wink | ;-)

However, it would help to be able to bring it to their attention. I just wish I knew where to do this in a manner that will allow it to be understood and treated seriously.
