I'm in the long-running process of producing an up-to-date build of Git
for Cygwin.  I think I'm now (finally) close to having a build ready to
upload to be installed via the Cygwin setup programs, but in the
meantime I'd appreciate my new build getting some additional testing.

I tried your git with repo.
RS-I9E3U8R4:[~/repo/test]> repo --version
repo version r1.2.7
        (from ssh://
repo launcher version 1.22
        (from /cygdrive/d/cygwin/home/robert_bu/bin/repo)
git version 2.0.4
Python 2.7.8 (default, Jul 25 2014, 14:04:36)
[GCC 4.8.3]

When I tried to initialize the repo, I got some error:
 From ssh://
  * [new branch]      master     -> origin/master
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/cygdrive/d/repo/test/.repo/repo/", line 2205, in
     os.symlink(os.path.relpath(src, os.path.dirname(dst)), dst)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory

My Cygwin environment:
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 RS-I9E3U8R4 1.7.31(0.272/5/3) 2014-07-25 11:26 x86_64 Cygwin

Do you have any idea?

Not really.  I don't even know what "repo" is, for a start, let alone
how it interacts with Git and/or Cygwin.  It looks like a third-party
tool, but that's all I can tell.
"repo" is a tool from Google to manage the source of Android.

If you can tell me what the values of `src` and `dst` are when you hit
that error, that could give me a pointer as to what's going on.  Maybe
repo has a debugging mode; if not you'll probably be able to just edit
`` to add some extra logging.

I take it this previously worked with the version of Git you got from
the regular Cygwin installers?  Did you uninstall those before you
installed my builds?

My initial suspicion is that this is either a difference between Git
v1.7.9 and v2.0.4 -- there're a lot of differences between those two
versions -- or possibly a missing package since my build is based off
Yaakov's Cygwin Ports version, which split out git-cvs, git-debuginfo,
git-email and gitweb.
I suspect that this problem is with the symlink handling of Cygwin, not git itself.
