what i disslike on gitweb most is that its unintuitive, viewvc is alot more
intuitive ...
then how do i view a diff for a specific change and file, if i click on
"history" for the specific file and then on "commitdiff" it shows a
diff covering many files, if i click on "diff to current" it shows a diff
against head ...

then what about colored diffs, what about colored source code

then blame, just shows the sha1 checksums of the commits but not the authors
and i suspect it also doesnt follow copies and moves ...
now who on earth cares about the sha1 checksum?! the silly gitweb should
show the authors and maybe a short date and if the user then clicks on it
show the corresponding diff/sha1/...

then i dont see any help which would explain what a "blob, commitdiff, tree,
... is"

i prefer mphq i think but if there are some problems with git on mphq and
live.polito.it can deal with the bandwidth ffmpeg would cause then thats
an interresting option too, i guess i prefer a server over which we have
some control vs. some sourceforge like service ...
