I'm sceptical about this approach: "viewing the repository from iOS"
might mean too much things to reason about. Have you managed to clone
the repository somehow to iOS? If yes, what tool did that (AFAIK, Git
does not run natively on iOS)?
Hence I'd start with exploring the repository innards to really see what
pathnames those files have. You do this by starting with a particular
commit and exploring it with `git ls-tree` and `git cat-file` -- going
through three objects until you find that one which contains the file
of interest and actually records its name.
