The latest upstream release of etckeeper is now available in the Cygwin 

Etckeeper is a tool to let /etc be stored in git or mercurial. It hooks 
into Cygwin Setup to automatically commit changes made to /etc during 
package upgrades. It tracks file metadata (permissions, owner, group) 
that version control systems do not normally support.

Bazaar is not fully supported, the pre-commit hook Python module is not 

Please note that Cygwin Setup <= 2.919 cannot automatically run the hook 
for 'etckeeper pre-install'. The next release will include this 
As a workaround, 'etckeeper pre-install' could be run manually before 
starting setup. If 'etckeeper pre-install' is not run, the 'etckeeper 
post-install' hook then also commits any pending changes done before 
setup, the "Package changes:" list in the log message is always empty 
and the "Packages with configuration changes:" list does not appear. The 
remaining functionality is not affected.

Please note that, unlike some Linux etckeeper packages, the postinstall 
script of this package does not perform the initialization of /etc/.git.
Run 'etckeeper init && etckeeper commit' manually under the same user 
which is effective during setup.
