patches: main as default branch, go gettable

Hello CGit folk!

I use cgit for my own git server and have made some minor modifications that might be of interest.

The first is the trivial change to assume main as the default branch name, as this is the new standard in git.

The second and more interesting is to add a <meta> attribute to make a repository go-gettable.

Both patches are attached; Happy new year and happy hacking!
