Re: git stopped working with 1.7.1

From this thread I gather that little or no progress has been made on
addressing the root cause of this issue. It still seems to be broken
with the latest 1.7 series packages.

What is the proper method for getting this bug in front of the guys
who maintain the openssh package? The cygwin website suggests that the
mailing list is the proper channel, but it doesn't seem like anyone's
seriously looking into this as an openssh issue.

It's clearly affecting more than a few users and the workaround, while
reliable, is quite lame. Can this please get a little bit more
