It's not really related, because gitweb and cgit are two different things.
yes, they are different.
But it is related because of the site referenced in the description https://gitweb.torproject.org/ is a cgit instance and not a gitweb one (the name is a misnomer).
We must look at the source code of the page to see the cgit reference (v1.1).
(I should have said as much when i asked the question because i saw that prior to asking).
I think the description should be amended to present a real gitweb instance though (which i have no clue where they are at and i'm too lazy right now to look for one ;).
