That file is specific to the git for windows project, not git itself.
While you may be able to find somebody on the git@vger mailinglist who
knows the answer, git for windows also has a separate mailinglist at
https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/git-for-windows and a chat room
at https://gitter.im/git-for-windows/git -- these may be of more
assistance in this case.
