The following are the couple of things needed to make git-gui work cleanly
under Cygwin. What they do is properly store the passphrase so that git
(and git-gui) respond properly when quesried by the master.
-Install the Cygwin procps package, if you don't have it -- this gives you
-Update your Cywin.bat file.
Make sure the second line (right after the echo line) is:
Add the following three lines before the last line (the bash line):
c:\cygwin\bin\ssh-agent > c:\cygwin\etc\profile.d\ssh-agent.sh
-At the bash prompt, enter ssh-add. You'll be prompted for the passphrase
you created for ssh.
You need to do the ssh-add prior to running git-gui, once per Cygwin bash
