I think that those translation rules are completely reasonable.

However, that's not what gitweb was originally designed to do.  What you're 
describing is a desire for a new feature, not the existence of a bug.  
Basically, gitweb does not support relative paths when the base url does not 
contain part of the path already.

You're right - that is where the change should be applied, and the change you 
suggest is pretty simple.

However, I'm not confident that the syntax for a relative path is the same for 
all schemes.  (Others on the list, feel free to object.)  Since gitweb blindly 
concatenates the base URL and the relative project path, I'm worried that 
adding the proper functionality for one scheme will yield incorrect behavior 
for another scheme.

Can you move your repository to a subfolder?  Can use use absolute paths 
instead of relative paths?  Either of those approaches work around this issue.  
I don't mean to coldly tell you that the solution is "don't do that", but on 
the surface, this seems like a nasty problem.
