Let's keep things professional. Eliciting emotions, especially negative
ones, traditionally makes it more unlikely to get what one asks for.

Also to clarify: as so many Open Source projects (but unlike Git itself),
msysGit is a purely volunteer-driven software. So naturally, contributors
have a lot more to say about the defaults than non-contributors [*1*].

Besides, there is a fantastic and very detailed page when running the
installer where the interested user can inform herself and change the
defaults to her likings very easily.

Therefore I consider this bug report -- insofar it was one -- as closed.


Footnote [*1*]: And yes, the line endings default was changed from this
developer's preference to what it is now -- based on a discussion with
convincing arguments. Since msysGit is developed as an Open Source project
with a truly Open Source process, all of these discussions can be found in
the mailing list archives.
