Read the git(1) manual page (run `git help git`) and look for the
"ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES" section -- you can set a bunch of variables
whose names start with the "GIT_COMMITTER_" prefix.

I'd say the whole approach is broken.
I would rather have a simple REST-y server running on localhost
under some "normal" credentials and accepting "update this file" POST
requests.  Your website's backend would then perform that request.

Variations exist: like the webserver putting files in a dedicated
directory with the Git-facing service using inotify/fsnotify events on
that directory to detect new files and doing its work.  A cron job
would be even more low tech.  Or you could connect the website's
backend and the service through a Redis DB instance or a special work
queue software etc.
