gitolite have a more fine ACL. Check it out. However it doesn't really
meet your needs with web-interface (and I'm not even sure about the ACL
thing is fine enough for you). You can read more about ACL in the git
The webgui that's most populair is cgit and git-web. They don't do ACL
Why would you need ACL? Why not don't share the branches that are going
to be secret? Or are you looking for some branches to be read only?
When we did this, we did a simple gitolite implementation ourself and
integrated cgit on our website wich already had ACL. It works well.
Howerver we do ACL on repo-level, not on branch level.
You can also look into git-submodules which will make it possible for
you to do repo-wide ACL.
However I'm not sure you will be using git in the way git is designed
too and even if it will work, maybe an other solution is better for you.
