Actually if you want it to behave like gitweb you'll need to use
something more like:
git for-each-ref --sort=-committerdate --format='%
--count=1 refs/heads > info/lastactivity
Since gitweb.perl actually uses:
open($fd, "-|", git_cmd(), 'for-each-ref',
'refs/heads') or return;
to get the timestamp which it uses to compute the age string.
