+Webserver configuration with multiple projects' root
+----------------------------------------------------
+
+If you want to use gitweb with several project roots you can edit your apache
+virtual host and gitweb.conf configuration files like this :
+
+virtual host configuration :
+
+<VirtualHost *:80>
+ ServerName git.example.org
+ DocumentRoot /pub/git
+ SetEnv GITWEB_CONFIG /etc/gitweb.conf
+
+ # turning on mod rewrite
+ RewriteEngine on

+ RewriteRule ^/$ /cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi [QSA,L,PT]

+ # http://git.example.org/~<user>/
+ RewriteRule ^/\~([^\/]+)(/|/gitweb.cgi)?$ /cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi [QSA,E=GITWEB_PROJECTROOT:/home/$1/public_git/,L,PT]
+
+ # http://git.example.org/+<user>/
+ #RewriteRule ^/\+([^\/]+)(/|/gitweb.cgi)?$ /cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi [QSA,E=GITWEB_PROJECTROOT:/home/$1/public_git/,L,PT]

+</VirtualHost>
+
+gitweb.conf configuration :
+
+$projectroot = $ENV{'GITWEB_PROJECTROOT'} || "/pub/git";
+
+These configurations enable two things. First, each unix user (<user>) of the
+server will be able to browse through gitweb git repositories found in
+~/public_git/ with the following url : http://git.example.org/~<user>/
+
+If you do not want this feature on your server just remove the second rewrite rule.
+
+If you already use mod_userdir in your virtual host or you don't want to use
+the '~' as first character just comment or remove the second rewrite rule and
+uncomment one of the following according to what you want.
+
+Second, repositories found in /pub/scm/ and /var/git/ will be accesible
+through http://git.example.org/scm/ and http://git.example.org/var/.
+You can add as many project roots as you want by adding rewrite rules like the
+third and the fourth.
