Git on MSys

Git is a powerful Source Code Management tool, which was created out of the need to replace BitKeeper — quickly! — with something else for the Linux kernel development.

In the meantime it has evolved to be one of the best SCMs around.

Unfortunately, Git on Windows is only officially supported using Cygwin. However, there is a fork (currently in the process of being merged with “official” git) which enables you to compile git using MinGW/MSys.

Git on MSys aims to make installing this port easy.
