Symlinks has nothing to do with the fact that I want the part of the configuration to be versioned. BTW on windows symlinks work kinda differently. Of course since Vista/Server 2008 we have mklink bundled, but I don't think msys.win will handle this situation correctly. Nevertheless the fact that the path to project-specific git extensions can change in futer remains true. So the only way to handle this correctly is to allow repository git configuration be versioned. At least a part of it.
