Hi Amir,

Have you looked at the patch I committed for core? The same technique might be applicable to compat.

Otherwise, you could revert the patch that broke it (which is probably one of the last ones in https://github.com/wikimedia/pywikibot-compat/commits/master/pywikibot/version.py )

Hello all,
As you may know due to bug 61846, It is impossible to run pywikibot in Windows

It was because git version control system doesn't work properly in systems that git isn't installed (obviously) and decrypting txt files in .git folder isn't our job

I tried to solve by logging commits in a text fie in here and when it can't be determined, the bot retrieves this file, finds out what is the version and adds it to cache.

It's the patch and It hasn't been merged yet because we need to check it and review it very carefully but sooner is better, So please help and test this patch in you environment. I tested it on my pc which uses windows (such a shame) and It worked correctly
