What is it? We tried setting the width property on the <td> and <tr> elements in cgit.css, but that was not effective. 

We would like to have a maximum row width, but we also like the ability to only enable certain types of tags. In our case, we have a path element to our tags, e.g. 'release/' and 'build/'. This allows developers to only fetch the tags they care about, and with this patterns change allows us to only show the tags we want to see on the page vs. all tags. I do think it might be better to add a class or id property to the tag links as they are printed, which might let individual users control the display via css.
