Welcome to the home page of Git for Windows
Git is a powerful version control system aiming to be the fastest decentralized source code management tool on this planet.
Having its root in the Linux development community, Git used to be quite dependent on POSIX features usually only provided by Unix-style Operating Systems. Thanks to the efforts of a few contributors, this project succeeded in providing an almost feature-complete fork of Git on Windows. Being solely driven by volunteers in their spare time, it is nevertheless quite stable.
In order to develop Git for Windows, these volunteers rely on a build environment that is based on the MSys/MinGW project. To sort out the confusion revolving around the naming scheme, let's have a look at this table:
|Git for Windows||msysGit|
|Audience:||Pure users of Git||Testers, developers, custom installer maintainers|
|Support:||Unfortunately none||Questions regarding building Git for Windows should be directed to the msysGit mailing list|
|Downloads:||On Google Code||On Google Code|
|How to start:||
|Bug tracker:||Closed||Please ask for help on the msysGit mailing list|
|Git repository:||On GitHub||On GitHub|
