Gitweb can generate feeds in RSS or Atom format. You can get any given version of a file; if not disabled you can download a snapshot of a given version of a project (project tree at given revision). You can search (if it is not disabled) for commits by an author, added to repository by a comitter, commit with commit message (commit description) which includes some text.

Project description

Gitweb</b> is a Git web interface, the one working on http://www.kernel.org/git/. It is written in Perl, and can be used as a CGI script, or as a mod_perl legacy script (run by ModPerl::Registry handler). It allows browsing a git repository (or a set of git repositories) using a web browser.

Using gitweb you can browse directory trees at arbitrary revisions, view contents of files (blobs), see log or shortlog of a given branch, examine commits, commit messages and changes made by a given commit. Gitweb can generate feeds in RSS or Atom format. You can get any given version of a file; if not disabled you can download a snapshot of a given version of a project (project tree at given revision). You can search (if it is not disabled) for commits by an author, added to repository by a comitter, commit with commit message (commit description) which includes some text.

There even exists a git-instaweb script to setup gitweb and a web server for browsing the local repository.
