After a Windows 10 update I was getting the error “couldn’t reserve space for cygwin’s heap win32 error 0 git”, when syncing a repository with GithHub for Windows desktop application.
Rebooting Windows 10, fixed the problem for me.
I was getting the error:
An error occurred. Detailed message: An error was raised by libgit2. Category = FetchHead (MergeConflict).
3 conflicts prevent checkout.
To resolve this problem, I installed the 3rd-party Git command prompt tools, then you can open a Windows git command prompt from Visual Studio 2013: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/dd286572.aspx#commands

The error was resolved.
If you are connected to a GitHub repository from Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 (see: https://www.roelvanlisdonk.nl/?p=3773) and want to do a pull (= "Get latest version") from GitHub, just follow these steps:
1. Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2103
2. Open the Team Explorer.
3. Connect to Team project.
4. Choose the GitHub respository.
5. Once connected go to the "Unsynced Commits" tab.
6. Click on "Sync" or "Pull" button.
If you are invited to work on a GitHub repository and you want to do so from Visual Studio 2013, then you can follow these steps:
Get the URL to the GitHub repository
Go to the repository on GitHub.com and copy the HTTPS clone URL or click on the copy to clipboard button:
Open Microsoft Visual Studio 2013.
Open the Team Explorer.
Click on the Clone button under "Local Git Repositries"
Enter the "clone url" from the GitHub page and enter a local folder, to store the code.
Open the code cloned and your good to go.
A very nice post for all Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 / TFS users, that want to get started with GitHub:
