OMFG if you ever get this error  "error: cannot spawn git: No such
file or directory" its a really nasty issue. It took me a day to track
it down, but it boils down to if you have more then 500 tags in a
repository it must blow up some internal command line limits on
cygwin.

TLDR: if you get this error, remove a bunch of your tags
