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[2]: 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.

Cheers Heiko
