Things seem to be working pretty well with our current cgit test, so the Systems team is planning on removing the gitweb interface on git.linaro.org on Friday.
There should be no noticeable downtime. The main difference is that you might have a bookmark or two that will change under cgit. I think you'll prefer the cgit style URLs for example:
Please raise any concerns you have by Friday

There's been a long standing request to move git.linaro.org's web UI over to cgit. We've just deployed a test version at:
We'd like to get people to try out and share any issues they have. Once we work through issues, we'd like to get rid of the old gitweb interface and make this the standard web UI to our git servers.
cgit has a bunch of nice features you should enjoy including:
- Significantly faster

- A much cleaner UI (slightly objective opinion)
- Actively used by the best git sites such as git.kernel.org
Q: The front page is much smaller? A: I've collapsed many of our lesser used "sections" including the "people" area so that our most used repos are more prominent.
Q: How does the "about" page work. A: Just add a file like README, README.txt, README.md, README.rst and it will automagically work. We can collapse or expand any sections we want, I just took an initial stab at what seemed obvious to me.
Q: This looks a little different than normal cgit? A: Yes, I've got to UI patches that have been reviewed, but not yet merged: https://lists.zx2c4.com/pipermail/cgit/2016-September/003300.html
Q: What about android-git.linaro.org? A: It will be converted after we finish with git.l.o
Q: What about our private git server? A: There is a small privacy issue I'm trying to work out with the maintainers so it can be used by us:
