I'll check out gitolite, thanks. We use unix users extensively (groups, permissions etc.) with YP, and this works well; a separate permissions scheme is not very desireable. The ssh method works very well right now, and nicely transparent. It's only the initial clone/creation that is harder than it was over NFS. And it prevents the use of git-shell too.
