Thanks for the heads up, and for taking some time to check it out.
The error doesn't seem obvious from the log.  Does Azure Pipelines
have anything like CircleCI's "Debug with SSH" feature[1]?  (Where one
can click a "Rerun job with SSH", and it'll restart the pipeline but
also print out an ssh command someone can use to directly access the
box on which the test is running, in order to be able to investigate.)
 Failing that, assuming I can find a Windows system somewhere, is
there a list of steps for setting up a development environment and
building git on Windows?
