I see two ways:
1) Use gitolite or gitosis which make server-side Git behave more like
Subversion (all repositories are operated using the same user account,
and developers are differentiated by their SSH keys, with fine-grained
control over who can do what).
2) Try the usual Unix approach:
   * Add all the necessary devs to a common group.
   * Make the repository writable by that group, and set the "set
group id" bit on it. Both these changes should be made recursively.
   This assumes Git runs with umask 002, and not with 022 or something
like this. I have no idea about how to check/change that.
