I've been trying to set up git-http-backend+lighttpd.  I've managed to
set up anonymous read-only access, and I then successfully configured
authentication for both read and write.  Then I get stuck.  The
man-page for git-http-backend says that the following snippet can be
used for Apache 2.x:

    <LocationMatch "^/git/.*/git-receive-pack$">
        AuthType Basic
        AuthName "Git Access"
        Require group committers

However, when I put in this match on location in my lighty config and
try to push I'm not asked for a password, instead I'm greeted with

    % git push 
    error: The requested URL returned error: 403 Forbidden while accessing 

AFAICS this means the man-page is wrong, and that I instead ought to
match on the "service=git-receive-pack" part.  Is that a correct
