     29   * Checkout as-is, commit as-is
     30 * Choose ```Start > Programs > Git > Git Bash```
     31 * Create a file named .bashrc in your Git Bash home directory that contains the following:
     32{{{
     33cd /c/cygwin/home/<username>
     34export HOME=$(pwd)
     35}}}
     36 * Relaunch Git Bash. The shell should be using your Cygwin home directory as its home directory.

     38Whenever you want to run a git command manually, use Git Bash. You can also run ```prepare-ChangeLog``` from Git Bash.
