Apparently cygwin works with windows at least up to April.

CVS will remain the master repository for the core. Only the bindings
are moving to git and I believe the fd.o devs are looking into a git to
CVS mirror in the future.  

In any case this move will allow me to get dbus to 1.0.  Without the
move I don't see myself putting much more time into it and no one else
has said they would do it.  The split is one of the last big things we
need to do and it has been a breeze doing it in git while meeting all of
our requirements.
