I am a bit confused by that comment, as it was my understanding that
the "credential format" only refers to what is stored in the Windows
specific credential storage and relevant only to users of msysgit
(and I expected folks who are using Git natively on Windows to be
using msysgit, not git.git), but in any case, of course we would
want a single version and format.  My question was if msysgit folks
want me to take your patch (which I cannot test myself) and then
merge my tree to the msysgit tree as part of their regular updates
to catch up with 1.8.2 (and future releases), or they want to test
your patches in their tree first, and then either throw me a pull
request or send me a patch series with Acked-by:.

I can obviously go either way, but if they expect the former (i.e. I
first apply and they pull) while I expect the latter (i.e. they
first apply and I pull), then nothing will happen, and if we go the
other way around, we would end up getting two copies of the same
series. The question was primarily to avoid these possibilities.
