I'm sure I complained about this before, perhaps this version is more convincing:
The repo page the name of the repo invites you do click it. You know you want to: that is why you are on this page. So you click it. Arrghh. It's just the almost-never-used meta-data slide out *again*. When will I learn? Never!
What do you want to do *most* of the time? Git Status!
I think the repo name should link Git Status (or Navigator or nothing perhaps). The metadata thing should be under the actions menu.
