Probably not necessary - I had another look at your config file and I
realised that almost every "readme" line has a trailing space.  The CGit
configfile parser strips whitespace around the "=" character but does
not strip trailing whitespace.

Strangely the rest of the lines in the file do not have any trailing
spaces and the line "readme=:install" doesn't but all the rest do (try
"cat -E cgitrc" to show this).
