There is similar improvement in gitweb-xmms2, where the git clone/fetch
URL for an individual project is visible in the "summary" page for project,
see e.g.;a=summary

I plan on implementing such a feature, with an improvement that URL is not
displayed if $git_base_url (your $home_link_str) is not defined (e.g.
repository is not published)... or you can reimplement this feature.;a=commit;h=8e327dfbdebedd0c5fc02fe606fd4675b43237d7
