#2099271: Deploy cgit on new git servers removed the web UI for git blame. That has been is a popular feature for several years. Let's find a way to restore the functionality.

If we want to add it to cgit, it is on their roadmap.

There are also other git->web viewer tools we could consider using.

"There are also other git->web viewer tools we could consider using."

When cgit was chosen for this it was the only option that could come close to meeting our scaling needs/performance needs. That may have changed, but....I kind of doubt it. There is a reason cgit has become so popular for big sites.

I agree with #6, I just wanted to list out what I can think of as the possible ways to handle this.

Definitely, just wanted to give some history. It is likely we will need to talk to the author and see what it would take to help this along.
