AW: Tag-Info on the Web-GUI (cgit)

Hi Christian,

This does not solve my problem. I don't have snapshots to download (hence snapshots=none).
At this point I want to see my tag annotation (e.g. gitweb does this). I can't configure that.

Das löst mein Problem nicht. Ich habe keine Snapshots zum Downloaden (daher snapshots=none).
An dieser Stelle möchte ich meine Tag-Annotation sehen (z.B. gitweb macht das). Das kann ich nicht konfigurieren.

Regards, Kilian

Usually you find the archive download links there, looks like you did not enable any snapshot archive formats. Have a look at `snapshots=` in cgitrc.

It looks like this with `snapshots=tar.gz tar.zst`:
main(a){char*c=/*    Schoene Gruesse                         */"B?IJj;MEH"
"CX:;",b;for(a/*    Best regards             my address:    */=0;b=c[a++];)
putchar(b-1/(/*    Chris            cc -ox -xc - && ./x    */b/42*2-3)*42);}
