I think the analysis in that stack overflow post is wrong. The use of
"our" in git_get_projects_list is not the culprit.

The problem is that one should not edit gitweb.cgi directly; its
built-in defaults (which you are tweaking) are overridden by
/etc/gitweb.conf, which is shipped by the Ubuntu package. You should
be making your changes in the config file, not the CGI script.
