I guess I do kind of miss the cheap = project homepage and project documentation.

cgit actually kind of has this, I just discovered. Just sprinkle this in your /etc/cgitrc:

(above scan-path, if you put that in your cgitrc).

Current setup:

# cgit config
# see cgitrc(5) for details




Anything else I would need?

I’m also using this opportunity to splitting subfolders out into new repositories for some projects. The GitHub help pages are still useful. :)

Free Software Needs Free Tools. «The only cost, we are told, is that the tools themselves are nonfree or run as network services with code we cannot see, copy, or run ourselves. In their decisions to use these tools and services—services such as BitKeeper, SourceForge, Google Code and GitHub—free software developers have made “ends-justify-the-means” decisions that trade away the freedom of both their developer communities and their users. These decisions to embrace nonfree and private development tools undermine our credibility in advocating for software freedom and compromise our freedom, and that of our users, in ways that we should reject.»
