Ah, okay... The reason why this is not that easy is: we ship with HTML
documentation (and skip `man` altogether, also to conserve space in the
already large installer: it is ~30MB, which might seem acceptable to you
until you are stuck in a country where the download is at 30-70 kB/s).
So I am afraid that the only solution in that case would be to install the
Git for Windows SDK (https://git-for-windows.github.io/#download-sdk, as
pointed out by Philip).
