It sounds like you're mis-using the git directory and attempting to
share by copying it instead of using any of the protocols designed for
sharing such as local file, ssh, or https.

I don't believe that storing the git via compression is really a good
idea, as many of the operations inside are based on files and we
already try to keep things compressed using various methods already
(pack files)

If you want to actually share a git repository as a bundle, you can
generate such a bundle. See "git help bundle" for more information.
