The use case scenario is doable with Apache's vhost directives, and is
likely a much better way to accomplish this then trying to teach gitweb
about vhosting.


should give some hints on how this can be done, but the long and the
short is, single install of gitweb with the config file using, say %0,
to dynamically figure out which domain to work from.
