The exact details of how to do that depend on your environment.
If you use an OpenSSH build/port, it support the so-calld "forced
commands"--where the SSH server can be configured to spawn a predefined
command instead of the one specified by the connecting client, and that
spawned command has access to the details of the original command
specified by the client via the environment variables it sees.
This can be used to enforce custom policies before a real Git program
has a chance to run. A notable widely-used Git server-side front-end
relying on this technology is gitolite. You can read about the details
Another approach is to let SSH call Git's plumbing commands which
handle communications with clients, `git upload-pack` and `git
fetch-pack`, and replace them with your custom wrappers.
