With Git >= 2.15 we get errors like TypeError: PackingType of packed-Refs not understood: '# pack-refs with: peeled fully-peeled sorted' which is fixed in a newer version of GitPython:
https://github.com/gitpython-developers/GitPython/issues/687
https://github.com/gitpython-developers/GitPython/pull/689

That will be a big upgrade so we should so thorough testing. Also we should try to get some GitPython fixes merged into upstream if they haven't yet. At https://github.com/johnsca/GitPython/tree/sf-master there are fixes for [#5411], [#6000], [#6078], and [#7021]. (SourceForge uses a custom build that includes those fixes, but Allura's requirements.txt version doesn't include those)
