Most issues are on grit side but basically to make it work on Windows in a msysgit I had to:

Possibly using https://github.com/schacon/grit would works without most of those patches.Using another coloring system in place of the current one would be advisable as it is deprecated.

Do you have a local version of git-up with the changes you describe? Care to fork/pull-request if so, so I can have a look?

Yes on my profile page. I'm using it daily exactly with ansicon.

Specifically, applying both of these:

wernight/grit@bdc23bd
stereobooster/posix-spawn@67a73c6

To grit and posix (respectively) fixes the issue. I have it working, though I haven't really bothered with the coloring issue. Black and white is just fine for now.

Yes correct, I forgot about the second one.

Coloring wouldn't such an issue if it didn't display the ANSI code. HA HA

True, and ansicon is pretty great anyway. Not too hard to throw it in path and alias over it. Figured that out about 5 minutes after my post ;]

If, like me, you're an idiot and let the msysGit install put it in the default directory (C:\Program Files (x86)), you're going to get some errors when trying to rebase (command line doesn't escape the parens or spaces properly). Uninstalling / reinstalling in a proper directory structure fixes that.

@alexdancho @wernight Would one of you care to fork git-up and write a WINDOWS.md describing how to get it running under Windows?

I've updated the summary to describe all the steps. That should be similar. As the commands are pretty advanced I'd advise against doing it manually in an official read-me.
