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.
