Hi there.

I could be wrong but there is a typo on one of the installation step's 
text. A word sport instead of support is used.

Here is a screenshot in attachments which shows where exactly the typo is.

Best wishes!

P.s. my personal email (svav@ymail.com) was denied by your post system

It's not a typo, "sport" can be used as a verb meaning to display or
have a notable feature, e.g.[1]:

    Jen's sporting a new pair of shoes; he was sporting a new wound from
    the combat

But maybe that copy should be simplified. I think the GFW bug tracker is
the right place to raise that as a suggestion[2].

Actually, a PR at https://github.com/git-for-windows/build-extra (after
following https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/wiki/Making-an-installer
to implement the change) would be the right thing to do.

Thanks,
Johannes
