You were quite brave to convince the auditors. In a way it is easy since git provides many more auditing features, but the process does not look so rosy.
But I have also to say that you were lucky: I have worked at places where the developers themselves could not be convinced to work without locks, and distributed VCS was alien technology. It was trebly painful: they did not trust nor understand lock-free VCS, they should have known better, and up to now they are still working with locks (with all that it entails).
