It might be better to direct this question to the Anaconda mailing list

You could distribute a shortcut for them that does the right thing when
you're packaging your repository.  If you come up with something better or
that works for you, please add it to the Software Carpentry "configuration
problems" Wiki

Right now Software Carpentry instructors usually get around this by
teaching the command line *before* Git :)
