cgit on alioth.debian.org
Recently I was doing some work on the alioth infrastructure like fixing things or cleaning up things.
One of the more visible things I done was the switch from gitweb to cgit. cgit is a lot of faster and looks better than gitweb.
The list of repositories is generated every hour. The move also has the nice effect that user repositories are available via the cgit index again.
I don’t plan to disable the old gitweb, but I created a bunch of redirect rules that - hopefully - redirect most use cases of gitweb to the equivalent cgit url.
If I broke something, please tell me, if I missed a common use case, please tell me. You can usually reach me on #alioth@oftc or via mail (firstname.lastname@example.org)
People also asked me to upload my cgit package to Debian, the package is now waiting in NEW. Thanks to Nicolas Dandrimont (olasd) we also have a patch included that generates proper HTTP returncodes if repos doesn’t exist.
