Implementation details let Git for Windows' git.exe live in /mingw64/bin
(that is the pseudo-Unix path, of course, the real Windows path will be
prefixed by the actual installation location). This resulted in the awkward
location of the system config in C:\Program Files\Git\mingw64\etc\gitconfig,
and that is what Git for Windows v2.x used for a few years.

A much more natural location, however, is the same path without that mingw64
infix. Therefore, the Git for Windows project switched (back) to that
location for a while now.

It is time to bring that change into core Git.

Dennis Ameling (1):
  cmake(windows): set correct path to the system Git config

Johannes Schindelin (2):
  mingw: move Git for Windows' system config where users expect it
  config: normalize the path of the system gitconfig
