Description Gerd v. Egidy 2008-11-14 19:52:56 EST
When using the /etc/httpd/conf.d/git.conf that is currently provided with the gitweb-package, you have to open

Adding the .../gitweb.cgi makes the URL longer and more complex.

So I propose to change the config like this:

Alias /git /var/www/git

<Directory /var/www/git>
  Options +ExecCGI
  AddHandler cgi-script .cgi
  DirectoryIndex gitweb.cgi

Adding the DirectoryIndex-directive makes it possible to call
which makes the urls shorter and easier to use.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

This is fixed in the rawhide packages now.  It will hopefully find its way into an F-10 update at some point.  Thanks!

Hi Todd,

just took a look at 1.6.1-1.fc11 in koji and it looks good. Thank you for adding this.
