Christian Hesse (list at has brilliantly added this feature with the
patch available here
It allows you to:
- add your own static table of contents and the links now point to the
right paragraph
- or add a [TOC] marker anywhere in the markdown file and let cgit
dynamically build your table of contents

I was able to test the about link with a toc having up to 5 levels of
indentation, which is much more than Gitlab is able to do (2).

Very nice ;-)
