Hi all,

I've recently installed cgit on CentOS 6 from the EPEL repository.
Unfortunately python3 is not available for CentOS 6. I have a couple
of questions:

- Why the hard dependency on python 3? I realize this is really a
packaging problem, but the doesn't look too
complex. Is there a reason python2 is not supported? Would a patch be

- I have manually installed python3 but I still don't see any of the
source files. I have verified that the script appears to be working by

$ cat code.h | /usr/libexec/cgit/filters/ code.h

and I do see what appears to be the correct HTML.

How can I debug why I am not seeing anything? Is there a log file somewhere?
