All nice and peachy, except for lack of a native win32 port... to use
git on win32 you apparently have the following alternatives:
1. recompile it with mingw
2. use a eclipse-based java implementation
3. install cygwin for the ride
everyone of these seems a bit too much trouble for just checking out
I propose Mercurial and my argument is that if it's good enough for to
be selected as a candidate for the Mozilla repository
it could work for Catalyst too.
