I have git installed on my Ubuntu system but I don't see any indication
that it is experimental. It's also installed on my gentoo system.
I don't think there is any reason to vote on this. I assume that you're
accomplished enough by now that you know how to build a package so I
don't see any reason to wait for uploading it.
I would really like to have this package in Cygwin. Thanks very much
for uploading it.
(and also thanks, I think, for confirming that I'm not a liar)
