That's why I'm not using the netinstall. I don't want those projects, I want '''my''' projects.

So, is this right? Why would netinstall automatically assume that any Windows user wants to work on the git  project, or the msysgit project? Or do I just have this all wrong? --[[User:Beanluc|Beanluc]] 19:29, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

:Nevermind: I found the answer. msysGit really is intended for those who "want to hack on git", on the other hand it really is appropriate, and even desireable, for those who '''don't''' want to do so. I don't want Cygwin, so, I won't use the regular git for Windows. I prefer the Mingw environment which comes with msysGit. Solution: use fullinstall and don't run the initialize.sh - avoiding getting the repo.or.cz stuff. --[[User:Beanluc|Beanluc]] 20:31, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
