    You will also note that this script takes an arbitrary number of extra package names to include: https://github.com/git-for-windows/build-extra/blob/bbab27c58d3da1887084311597ecc68d6cb041b0/make-file-list.sh#L123
    If you hack release.sh to pass those extra package names to make-file-list.sh, you should be set.
    Just don't ask me to support your use case :grinning:

    @dscho Perfect, thanks! I won't. I know my question is kind of odd, but Git bash has become the default environment to run shell scripts on Windows. It's so convenient to install just one tool as a bootstrap.

    Hi
    I wonder if there is a way of NOT merging/uploading unfinished tasks?
    My problem is that we need to shift focus because of urgent problems to solve. That means that we are pausing current work, solving the production problem and then shifting back to the original case.

    Sure. You can either stash your interrupted work and unstash it when you come back or alternatively create a local WIP commit and ammend that when you come back.

    Aha great, will test and let you know.

    What is the difference between these two commands...

    git checkout <source_branch> <files>
    git checkout --patch <source_branch> <files>

    Anything?

    @dscho
    The --patch version lets you select interactively what parts you want to apply. Without --patch, the entire changes relative to the current HEAD will be applied to the specified files.

    where in the makefiles is compat-bash.exe built?

    nvm found it, it was in the MINGW-packages repo, mingw-w64-git/{compat-bash.res,git-wrapper.c}

    Just popping in to say thank you Johannes, and everyone else who is a working part of this project. You guys are doing gods work. Thank you for git-for-windows. I am using it in my Cmder software package and it is incredible as it teaches me the answers I've long looked for and it also helps me understand how everything that is (lets call it YOOnix)-like has worked around to this day. I find the history of technology from hardware to coders to engineers and electrical, digital, radio communication the most fascinating cumulative mathematics I have ever seen. I hope everyone gets the life they envisioned from this effort when it is revealed to the world by a voice that's loud enough to wake them up. I prefer to thank you in advance. Sincerely. -Daniel aka satoshi0x on Keybase :)

    hi, could be possible to use pacman from git for windows directly
    ?
    David Macek
    @elieux
    Hi. I think the official way would be to use the SDK.

    I have a merge conflict between a feature branch, and my master branch. Normally I would resolve this by merging master into my feature branch, resolving the conflict(s), and then merging back.
    However, I want to pollute my feature branch with all the other things on master. How can I perform a merge to my feature branch only of the file conflicts?
    David Macek
    @elieux
    You can merge an older commit on master if that helps.

    Hi, landed here while searching for info on a not-trusted key of the git-for-windows installation in Msys2.
    Just got it working in Msys2 (and VSCode and TortoiseGit) by following Install-inside-MSYS2-proper.
    There was just one little stumbling block: one of the keys (@dscho) was not initially trusted. That could be solved by signing the key locally via ´pacman-key --lsign-key <key-id>´.
    Don't know if that was a problem only on my installation or on the trust-setting at the repository. Perhaps this info may help others with the same problem, took me some time.
    David Macek
    @elieux
    Did you follow step 2 of the guide, @clunion?
    clunion
    @clunion
    Yes. That step did not work initially (did hang, had to break it after about 20 minutes), i then tried to do the 3 commands step by step, which did not work ether. After some probing i re-initialised the pacman trust-db and did some other steps, until the Step 2 finally worked as shown in the guide. But the key was still not trusted.
    David Macek
    @elieux
    Ah, okay, there seems to be a new key.
    David Macek
    @elieux
    Thanks for the notice.
    Page is now updated.

    can anyone help me out with this problem
    how to solve it as my program is not executing
    David Macek
    @elieux
    It's not even compiling actually.
    It looks like you're missing an entry point. Most often main().

    see its not even executing the simplest one
    i think there is some issue with mingw but don't know how to fix :(
    David Macek
    @elieux
    I don't see anything wrong with the program.
    But you have GCC 6, maybe even a mingw.org toolchain. This is pretty old, so my advice is to use a recent mingw-w64 based toolchain instead.

    @schroeca
    I have some issues with my msys2 installation. I can not update the git-for-windows repository. I have tried a lot of different things with the keyring, because it looks like an issue with the key
    Is this a known issue? I could not find any help on google

    Anyone know who owns the gpg key: 91883E11E83DC29D14104DB4EDD44359093056EE - I am having the same sort of problem as @schroeca but for this key instead:

    It's my GPG key. It's the same as @schroeca reported.
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    But that is a different one, isn't it:

    Johannes Schindelin
    @dscho
    The former is a subkey of the latter.
    Have you tried following the steps in the linked wiki page?
    Stephen Lyons
    @SlySven
    Ah, one is your signing key and the other your authentication one?
