Maybe even switch to CGit? Maybe even offer push support via  http:// for selected repositories? Maybe reinstating the contrib branches that way?

Change History

Another option would be to add blanket redirects for all gitweb.cgi URLs to the browser. It would be simple, at least.

Good idea. But this week, and in particular today, I should refrain from addressing such tempting sidetracks.

Actually, this was much more pressing than I thought because of fiji.git's .gitmodules referring to the contrib account. This was done so that Albert could access things from Janelia (where 9418, i.e.  git://, is blocked).

So I installed the smart HTTP backend (git clone works now), installed much better GitWeb shortcuts than we had before, but that needs a bit more work for "" to show correct links to commit diffs, blobs, trees, etc).

Okay, this is done now. Thanks to extensive Alias and ScriptAlias-fu, even old links started working again.

One last thing that wasn't working was the project listing at, but I fixed it now.
