Autoloader cannot load files from Repos with runtime 13.0+

Since runtime 13.0+ it is not possible anymore to reference Repos files with Autoloader using the "file:" prefix, e.g. "file:/Workspace/Repos/...". This was working before, but now Autoloader throws an error:

com.databricks.sql.cloudfiles.errors.CloudFilesUnsupportedOperationException: The cloud files source only supports S3, Azure Blob Storage (wasb/wasbs) and Azure Data Lake Gen1 (adl) and Gen2 (abfs/abfss) paths right now. path: 'file:/Workspace/Repos/.../', resolved uri: 'file:/Workspace/Repos/...'

This was not mentioned in the breaking changes. We use Repos for running our integration tests of which the test files are also stored in the repository. So this is completely breaking our integration tests.

Does anyone know how to solve this?
