+The Steps of Build Git with VS2008
+1. You need the build environment, which contains the Git dependencies
+ to be able to compile, link and run Git with MSVC.
+ You can either use the binary repository:
+ WWW: http://repo.or.cz/w/msvcgit.git
+ Git: git clone git://repo.or.cz/msvcgit.git
+ Zip: http://repo.or.cz/w/msvcgit.git?a=snapshot;h=master;sf=zip
+ and call the setup_32bit_env.cmd batch script before compiling Git,
+ (see repo/package README for details), or the source repository:
+ WWW: http://repo.or.cz/w/gitbuild.git
+ Git: git clone git://repo.or.cz/gitbuild.git
+ Zip: (None, as it's a project with submodules)
+ and build the support libs as instructed in that repo/package.
+2. Ensure you have the msysgit environment in your path, so you have
+ GNU Make, bash and perl available.
+ WWW: http://repo.or.cz/w/msysgit.git
+ Git: git clone git://repo.or.cz/msysgit.git
+ Zip: http://repo.or.cz/w/msysgit.git?a=snapshot;h=master;sf=zip
+ This environment is also needed when you use the resulting
+ executables, since Git might need to run scripts which are part of
+3. Inside Git's directory run the command:
+ to generate the common-cmds.h file needed to compile git.
+4. Then build Git with the GNU Make Makefile in the Git projects root
