If the workflow of programmers is heavily based on git, then the preferred form of the work is the git tree and that is what the GPL requires Red Hat (and others) to distribute.
Many developers don't use git (Linus himself used just a series of tarballs for years). And since in court you'll be confronted by FSF (it developed gcc, glibc and many other things in exactly this fashion for years—the only difference was that they used CVS and not git back then) who wrote GPL in the first place… I wish you luck—you'll need it.
