[PATCH 0/2] Git-Config Parsing during scan-path

Some time ago, Jamie sent a patch to this list that allows to parse the git
config on scan-path [1]. The main use-case is a nice integration with gitolite
instead of the 'one workaround per option' as it is handled now

As Jason had asked to resend non-applied patches, I took the chance to port the
patch to the current master and to update the documentation.

Changes wrt the old patch:

* Use "cgit" as gitconfig section instead of "repo" -- the latter is too generic
imho and might lead to problems in the future.

* Removed some obscure Apache hint that seemed to be out of context.

* Update example gitolite.conf to recent gitolite-3 syntax.

* Pointed out that it works perfectly fine together with the (now) existing
'enable-gitweb-*' stuff.
