Support for submodules in tree view?

Do you have an example or two of values for module-link? I didn't see an example on the sample config file at http://git.zx2c4.com/cgit/tree/cgitrc.5.txt
If both module-link and repo.module-link are present, would repo.module-link override the global module-link?

You probably need to set the "module-link" configuration variable in your cgitrc file.
Since it's possible for submodules to link to a different server, there isn't really much CGit can do in the general case. Note that there's also "repo.module-link.<path>" in case your submodule paths don't match up to their URLs, although I'm quite surprised we don't support a filter to map submodule URLs to links - something to go on the TODO list perhaps...
