I configured the git bash shell on windows 7 following GitHub help to start a ssh agent, because I don't want to type every time the passphrase for my ssh key.

I added to that configuration, in .bashrc, the following lines:


These lines add the environment variables to windows user profile.

So the git executable, configured in SublimeGit, can read the variables and use the correct protocol.

Firstly I start the bash shell and then I start SublimeText editor.

Now SublimeGit works perfectly.

You may add a quick note for windows users using ssh passphrase.

SublimeGit may start a ssh agent, if it is not running, and set the ssh variables.
It may be a nice and feasible solution.

I will look into this. It might be possible to add some settings to sublimegit which can handle this, but it might also be too specific a situation or outside the scope of what SublimeGit does (i.e. managing ssh-agent etc.).

In any case, i'll be sure to at your method to the documentation.
