I haven’t yet published a setup project, but I have checked in the binaries under the bindebug folder.  Please feel free to post any bugs or feature requests.

I’ve played around with the Git command line tools, but I really like TortoiseGit.  It makes it very easy for people who are used to the TortoiseSVN layout, but it also gets you familiar with the Git concepts.

I’ll let everyone know when I get some of my projects posted up there.
