Didn't realize that!  

I'd picked gitweb in the first place as I figured, being part of git, that kernel project would be using it.

Clearly I'm wrong.

Switching to CGit now.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't use Arch (Opensuse User), but am trying to follow their CGit + UWSGI + Gitolite docs:

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cgit#Using_uwsgi

Since my distro pkgs have different paths, systemd setup, etc. having some challenges getting a everything-working-together config setup.  That'll just take some reading and staring ! ;-)

If you know of any other good examples , please share :-)

TA!
