fast, scalable, distributed revision control system (web interface)

Git is popular version control system designed to handle very large projects with speed and efficiency; it is used for many high profile open source projects, most notably the Linux kernel.

Git falls in the category of distributed source code management tools. Every Git working directory is a full-fledged repository with full revision tracking capabilities, not dependent on network access or a central server.

This package configures a web interface for browsing git repositories.

If apache2 is installed, the web interface is automatically made available at http://localhost/gitweb. Other servers that support CGI or mod_perl are supported through manual configuration.

If libcgi-fast-perl is installed, gitweb can also be run over FastCGI (and served by nginx, for example).

gitweb for Debian

The gitweb CGI by default looks into the directory /var/cache/git/ for
browsable repositories (this is configured in /etc/gitweb.conf).  It expects
the repositories' .git subdirectories in /var/cache/git/, symlinks pointing
to the corresponding subdirectories in the repositories are just fine, e.g.:

 ln -s ~pape/git/foo/.git /var/cache/git/foo.git

gitweb (1: unstable; urgency=low

  The gitweb auxiliary files gitweb.css, git-favicon.png,
  git-logo.png, and gitweb.js have been moved from /usr/share/gitweb
  to a static/ subdirectory.  You may need to adapt your web server
  and gitweb configuration to adjust.  See /usr/share/doc/git/README.Debian
  for details.
