There is msysGit.  This project is nearing to its first beta, being 
self-hosted since mid-August IIRC.

It is a port of Git to MinGW, using parts of MSys as long as we have 
dependencies on bash and perl.

I have no doubt that we'll manage to finish version 0.3 of the installer 
this week, still not decided if it is still alpha or already beta.

There are some issues with using msysGit, none of them really serious, but 
you better be ready to ask questions on this list or #git in case 
something crops up.  msysGit is young.

Having said that, IMHO msysGit is already quite usable, and should be 
pretty stable within a few weeks (if it is not already).
