I think this third line should be "with what _is_ used" to match the
verb and noun pluralness. Or to keep better parallel structure with
the first clause, something like "...their names do not conflict with
those that are used by Git...".
 Is there a word to mean the "pluralness" of a noun or verb (similar
to "tense" for a verb). Surely there is, but I could not think of
it. I wanted to say here that the pluralness of "what" and "are"
does not match (it seems like "what" is a mass noun, which usually
matches a singular verb).
