- Subject: Headsup: several packages require .manifest files
The following packages ship with EXEs whose names trigger UAC in Vista
and Windows 7 but do not yet ship with the required .manifest files:
git (several in /usr/sbin/git-core)
(This list does not include my own packages, which I'm working on now.)
The newly-released cygport-0.9.6 (for cygwin-1.7 only) will
automatically create .manifest files for programs whose names require
it. All you need to do is rebuild your package with 0.9.6.
 Which, AFAIK, should be /usr/lib/git-core per the FHS.
