Git on Cygwin

Here are the steps I perform to use Git on Cygwin:

• Install necessary packages: git, gitk, subversion, subversion-perl. That's because I use Subversion via Git bridge.

• Amend C:\cygwin\lib\perl5\vendor_perl\5.xx\ file using this patch. That's to fix small bug causing "Permission denied: Can't open '/cygdrive/c/DOCUME~1/myself/LOCALS~1/Temp/report.tmp'" error.

• Configure white spaces using this command to fix trailing spaces warnings.
