Do not get me wrong. I was saying until now nobody "needed" it in a way that he/she would do something about it. Of course there are many people requesting it, but I just do not count those people anymore. You are clearly doing something about it and thats great, I like it. What I am trying to achieve here is that you join the msysgit community. There already is just a very small amount of developers on the windows side (compared to upstream). We should try to all work together. I think it will greatly add to confusion if we have another installer of Git for Windows. I think the msysgit community is quite open for changes like the ones you are trying to achieve. Regarding mingwGitDevEnv: That is a project started by Sebastian who also contributes to msysgit (and Git for Windows). It eventually can (and probably should) be a successor of the current situation where we always manually patch, build and commit our binaries into a git repository. A proper package management system would greatly help here. But AFAIK its not ready for production use yet. I guess Sebastian would not mind contributions.
