Can anyone enlighten me about the relationship of "Git for Windows" to Cygwin?
They are not related.
Yes, they are.
No they're not.
Tony explained well how they are related; Git for Windows is compiled in and packaged with MSYS2 which is forked from Cygwin.

It doesn't use cygwin, therefore it's not related. Since this is a cygwin mailing list,
that means the first two replies were correct — this isn't the place to discuss it.
