Hello Karsten,

thanks for your analysis.  Most of the patches you refer to are simply
switching off tests for MINGW; let me comment on the remaining ones:

Indeed, that would be better solution.  For now, I'm going to submit the
switch-off patch you mention.

Will submit that patch series soon.

"cp -P" fails with our 2001-edition of cp, so msysgit had to revert:

But I was ashamed to mention that upstream; and I hope mingwGitDevEnv is
going to solve that.

Nice!  But I'm afraid the patch cannot be submitted upstream as it is.

I think the hack could be automated by processing options "-L*" this way:
    sed 'sX\(^-L\|,\)\^\?/X&\\;*Xg'
Then it would become only few lines at the top of the script, executed
on mingw only.
I hope to submit the patch in this form soon.

Have a nice day,
