Oh interesting - I've only peripherally looked at Git-for-Windows code,
since Chromium uses its packages verbatim (thanks, BTW!). I think you're
correct though - this patch set seems to be doing the same thing.
I've been force-pushing my changes to the "runtime-prefix" branch of my Git
fork for travis.ci testing. The latest commit on that branch adds a
"config.mak" for testing, so one commit from the branch head will contain
the sum set of this patch series applied at (or near) Git's master branch:
Let me know if this is what you are looking for, and if I can offer any
help with Windows testing. Thanks!
