There is nothing wrong in insisting the repository to be hosted on the client metal. The way things were done in the ancient times before the cloud to become the favorite buzzword of the month.

I agree. The cloud isn't new. VPN's have existed for ever as well as client-mainframe.

There's always an uneasy balance between security and convenience.
