Git for Windows v2.22.0-rc2, was Re: [ANNOUNCE] Git v2.22.0-rc2




Team,

here is the corresponding Git for Windows v2.22.0-rc2:

https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/releases/tag/v2.22.0-rc2.windows.1

So far, I am rather happy with the robustness of the release candidates,
but please y'all: test!

Thanks,
Johannes
