Just a word about using git on win32 for few days.

I am using msys-git ( I past the same link I saw in the gstreamer mailing
list: http://code.google.com/p/msysgit/ ).
It works pretty fine.
In GitBash the minimum vital commands are : git pull, git status, git add
file, git commit -m "msg", git push, git reset --hard HEAD.
And GitGUI is usefull to have a full view of logs and histories.

About using ssh, rsa and other stuffs, it was not so easy but the summary is
install putty, use puttygen gui to generate a .ppk file that contains pub
and private keys.
(So you can use this .ppk through putty tools)
Then you have two solutions to use it with git.
The easiest is to convert this ppk file : puttygen mykey.ppk -O
private-openssh -o mykey
Then : ssh-add mykey
finally: git clonse ssh://username@server.org/git/stuff.git/

Note that you can use this solution on linux too, if you want to re-use your
.ppk file.

The second solution was to use the .ppk file through pageant when cloning.
