>From my reading of the code, that concatenation is only used when a url-prefix 
is defined.  In which case, simply changing the line from:

  base = fmt("%s/%s", base, suffix);


  base = fmt("%s%s", base, suffix);

allowing the forward slash to be specified as part of the prefix insetad.

Yes, unfortunately prior to integrating cgit, our repository urls have been 
using the shorthand format.

Thanks for the feedback and pointer to the relevant code.
