The proper maintainer for the git-gui is Pat Thoyts (cc'd) who now has a 
repo at where Pull requests can be 
made, with patches posted here initially for wider review.

I'm just another contributor, but I have managed (with a bit of help from 
google and formative years using FORTH;-) to get a few git-gui patches 
tested and incorporated. tcl/tk isn't that hard, its just interpreted

Git-for-Windows SDK environment (with help).
