Subject: [Feature Request] Bundled Git

I was just thinking it would be nice if strawberry perl, or the build process that creates strawberry perl, could be easily adjusted to incorporate deploying a git binary into the installed Perl environment.

There's a lot of development tooling on CPAN these days with an inherent dependency on Git, and there are people doing development work on Win32 and Git and CPAN, so it would be nice if we could smooth the road to getting the things they might be using properly tested by making git available.

And then we might get a bit more pass results from things like Git::Wrapper http://matrix.cpantesters.org/?dist=Git-Wrapper%200.031;os=mswin32;reports=1

And get more pass results from things that use Git::Wrapper

And I'd certainly wager there is more demand from CPAN that we have 'git' , as opposed to say, gnuplot. ( Though git would be more useful as part of the standard install as opposed to the PDL install )

Subject: [Extension Request] git utility
unfortunately standard git utility is too much UNIX oriented (requires UNIX shell) but I keep this RT open if some simple/lightweight git clients appears in the future

It doesn't seem to need one to use it, but I guess it might require one internally :(

The problem I see with non-git simple/lightweight competition to git, is they may be entirely useless for CPAN tools if they're incompatible in even the slightest way.

But you can certainly invoke and use git from the Win32 cmd.exe, and it does work just fine in perl programs if you install it along side Strawberry Perl.
