Thanks for writing this.

I think this one should wait until someone (perhaps me) takes care of
the redirects.  Ideally in addition to simple "this place has moved"
HTML placeholders and manpages using the .so macro, a makefile target
to generate redirect directives for your apache configuration might
make sense.

In the meantime, having "man gitrepository-layout" is not the worst
wart in the world.
