Hi all,

There was a long outstanding bug [1] to package cgit for Debian,
submitted in February 2009. Over the course of the last years different
people wanted to do this; different problems were found during the

Finally Alexander Wirt packaged cgit and it entered Debian unstable [2]

With the upcoming freeze of Debian Jessie, which is planned to happen on
the 5th of November 2014, and given a delay for package transitions
from unstable to testing between two to ten days, I hope cgit will make
the move before the freeze, which would include it in the upcoming
Debian newstable, to be released ~ spring/summer 2015. (Don't take this
for granted.)

These are really great news, which I just wanted to share with you. :)

Thanks for your great work on cgit, highly appreciated!

Have a nice weekend,
