+If you allow overriding for the snapshot feature, you can specify which
+snapshot formats are globally disabled. You can also add any command line
+options you want (such as setting the compression level). For instance,
+you can disable Zip compressed snapshots and set GZip to run at level 6 by
+adding the following lines to your $GITWEB_CONFIG:
+ $known_snapshot_formats{'zip'}{'disabled'} = 1;
+ $known_snapshot_formats{'tgz'}{'compressor'} = ['gzip','-6'];
