Please, small fix: click on title of repo to go to home of repo

Why not make repository titles link to the repository home page instead of just being plain text? It's intuitive.

e.g. in "project name / repo-name" make "repo-name" a link to the main url for the repo.

        If this is to be added, it should also work on the group page as well. Currently, the group name is not a link (when on the group page).

        I think that from UX perspective, why not have both? What negative comes out of having both the title link and the home button? The positive is that the user will click on whichever his intuition leads him to first. For example, the firs time I used GitLab I went to click on the title, only to find out it wasn't a link, then I noticed the house icon.

        Joseph, if you are on the wall you can already press the home button to go to the home of the repo. We rather not have two links to the same place.

        +1 Now I understand what you mean: the header title.

        Currently, only the group / username is clickable, but not the project name, is that it?

        @admin. If I'm at domain.com/group/project/wall, I am no longer on the home URL of the repo. What I'm saying is that the name of the repo should always be a link. It's intuitive. Some people don't look for the home icon, they look for the name (like I did).

        Please see the screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/SaNdTCC.png

        On the top left you see "Pocket Protectors / HP DSAT". The name of the repo "HP DSAT" should be a clickable link, and it should be equivalent to clicking on the house icon.
