Currently I have two versions of migw; one come with git(msysgit) and are simplified mingw and the second i unstall manually using mingw-get-inst. Second one came with normal C/C++ compiller, make util and other.

Its cause me to switch version to current mingw every time i need. (Just change path in my PATH environment variable)

So i'd like install mingw via mingw-get-inst and then make:
mingw-get install git
and all git with all will be installed to my mingw folder.
Or there is standart solution of given problem?

    You can install msysgit beside mingw/msys. Just remove the msys-1.0.dll file in msysgit/bin. Then add msysgit/bin to the *end* of your PATH.

    And, if you want to be able to install msysgit using mingw-get, you'll need to take that up with the msysgit maintainers; it's a completely independent project, over which we have no control.
