Hi Andy,

I'm happy to engage technically here in order to find the best way of
going about this. However,

I don't see the relevance of whether or not you're paid and how much
time you have to implement things, or what predictions are about sink
or swim with regards to Github.

I think the general ideas you've presented in these patchsets are good
ones, and now it's time to collaborate on the best way to go about
doing it. Part of what we're encountering here is the fact that cgit
hasn't originally had a robust display/hosting intent; it was mostly
around showing the state of the git repository. Now we're trying to
grow beyond that. Hence, I'd like to organize this in a sensible way
so that such rendering capabilities are available at the heart of
cgit, rather than haphazardly added on with a smattering of
contradictory configuration switches. In spite of your pay grade, your
time budget, or your timescale, I'm going to make sure this gets done
in the right way.
