Sure, it may be overkill if you look at the feature list; you only
need a small subset of features offered by gitolite.  But looking at
the effort you spend it may well be the easiest way forward.

AFAIU you are trying to limit access to specific "areas" of you git
repo using file permissions.  I'd say that's not a solution to the
permission problem that is particularly common and thus unlikely to
well supported.  I believe the most common way to introduce
permissions inside a git repo is through using hooks, which AFAIU is
exactly how gitolite does it.

I've seen there are collections of hooks out there (e.g.
<https://github.com/icefox/git-hooks>), maybe that's another way
forward if you don't want to go down the set-up-a-git-server route.
