Cygwin Git hangs on entering password
When users enter their username and password to authenticate with Stash, the process just seems to hang with no output:
$ git clone ... Cloning into ... Password: test123
By default, Git is using functionality available to UNIX, but not available to Cygwin.
The solution is to install an SSH_ASKPASS compatible program for Windows and configure Git to use it.
