It SHOULD be because msysgit uses the msys libs but I haven't tried that. Theoretically you should be able to add wget and sh to your msysgit bin folder and it'll work.

As far as I can remember I missed some other tools, but in the end it was less hassle, and is the least hassle when using it in production, to use a non-cygwin aproach.

You are probably right. And it's much cleaner on a production system to do it your way. On a dev system, though, I like cygwin since it's just click once :-)

Oh, I also mean dev, as it creates some conflicts in workflow using linux and windows command line mixed. (Path issues, etc).
