Actually, I got this working. I needed to install all the putty tools,
to have Putty, Pageant, Puttygen and plink.
I used puttygen to import my fdo openssh key and save it as a Putty PPK
file, then loaded it into pageant. Next, I set a couple of windows
Next, I used the Putty GUI to log in to my fdo account, because I needed
to be able to click the 'yes, allow and remember this server key', which
I can't do when GIT logs in, but once it is done things are ok.
Then, I was able to use git-gui to clone a repository (I tried with
cairo), and I've got a tree I can use, and it's been checked out with
CRLF line endings, which is nice. The clone itself took a really long
time (> 1 hour), but I think that is the really bad network here at
GUADEC, or caused by the fact I'm doing all this in a VM, and not a
symptom of an inherent performance problem of msysgit.
