git.osmocom.org cgit improvements

Hi all,

today I've deployed some cgit improvements on https://git.osmocom.org/,
in the hope that it makes this tool even more useful:

1) syntax highlighting of source code (requested by Hoernchen)

The source code is now highlighted by pygments.  I don't really
understand why somebody would want to look at source code a lot in a
browser, but well, it was as easy as to enable the existing pygments
based filter plugin.


2) rendering of "about" page from README.md

As you might have noticed, I've introduced a README.md in a number of
repositoires, and cgit is now rendering an about page for every
repository, e.g. at http://git.osmocom.org/libosmo-abis/about/


3) gerrit change-ID hyperlink generation

All gerrit Change-IDs in commit messages are now automatically converted
to hyperlinks to the respective gerrit change, see e.g. the below
example:
http://git.osmocom.org/openbsc/commit/?id=6dd0fc685b7149f67a5fe17a5bce55c446aa563c

Please note that this works for the "Change-Id" line of the actual
change, but also for change-ids in the free text (e.g. "this depends on
change-id ... in libosmocore")


4) Osmocom ticket/issue hyperlink generation

Any Line that matches the "^((Relate|Close|Fixe)[ds]):" prefix is
scanned for occurrences of "OS#(\d+)" which are then amended with
hyperlinks to the respective issue on osmocom.org

Please note the OS# prefix is mandatory, so things like "OS#1614, 1615"
will not work, as can be seen at
http://git.osmocom.org/osmo-pcu/commit/?id=0a8fae8d141c2cfa4387ffe9b35402d5b8cc85cd

Please format your commit messages accordingly.

Regards,
	Harald
