The main idea behind gitolite is is *virtualizing* the users which
access the repositories this tool manages -- this allows to set up only
a single system user account (usually "gitolite" or just "git") and use
it for all access *while still using personal SSH keys for
authentication.*  That is, your developer should specify the user name
matching whatever system account has been created while setting up
gitolite but use its own SSH key for authentication, so everyone in
your shop has to user repo URLs like "git@server:repo" or
"gitolite@server:repo" -- the actual distinguishing between "real"
users is done by gitolite itself based on their SSH keys.

You probably should take another stab at reading [1].
