Hi Maggie,

I have a Windows machine so I picked the binary with Cygwin (not sure if
that's the right one)

Which of the two version you use is up to you.
Yet, it's odd that they're listing the Cygwin version first on this
page (they link to MSYS Git from their homepage). Using the MSYS
version saves you the hassle with Cygwin (you can use the first
download listed on the MSYS Git page).

So I get to the installer and then I see a bunch of packages. It reminded
me of package managers like Synaptic and Adept with each package being
under various categories.

Right, Cygwin does some package management.
If you want to use Cygwin: Look in the devel category, there you
should find several entries that start with git, just install all of
them (maybe except git-svn, you definitely won't need that for LibO).
Click on the Skip icon, this should should change to a cross to
signify that this package will be dowloaded. All the recommended
downloads will be marked automatically.
