Hi All,

I've found the support for Atom and RSS commit feeds in gitweb to be
very useful.  I'd like to extend the support to include tag feeds as a
simple means of announcing/tracking releases.  Might such a feature be
acceptable in some form?

Giuseppe Bilotta raised this idea and provided an implementation in
2012[1] and 2017[2] which did not receive any responses on-list that I
could find.  Would these be a suitable starting point?

Thanks for considering,
Kevin

I suspect that these patches would have been OK back then.

The thing is, it appears nobody actively maintains gitweb anymore,
which cuts both ways.

 - We may not have made fundamental changes to the program in the
   last 3 years, so patches from 2017 may still be relevant.

 - Even if 2017 patch were to be resurrected, nobody would be able
   to review and vouch for the result.

So, if you still use gitweb and want to take over its maintenance,
or if we can revive interest in those who want to maintain it,
perhaps.

Understandable.  Thanks for explaining the situation!  That's good to
know.

For my current needs, switching to another web interface, like cgit,
seems preferable.

Best,
Kevin
