This isn't exactly what you're looking for, and it requires a fair
amount of administration (at least setup).  As a matter of fact, I may
just be being too much of a git convert. :]

Gitolite ( https://github.com/sitaramc/gitolite ) sits on top of git
and, according to its README, it does the following:

"Gitolite lets you use a single user on a server to host many git
repositories and provide access to many developers, without having to
give them real userids on or shell access to the server. The essential
magic in doing this is ssh's pubkey access and the authorized_keys
file, and the inspiration was an older program called gitosis.

Gitolite can restrict who can read from (clone/fetch) or write to
(push) a repository. It can also restrict who can push to what branch
or tag, which is very important in a corporate environment. Gitolite
can be installed without requiring root permissions, and with no
additional software than git itself and perl. It also has several
other neat features described below and elsewhere in the doc/
directory."

Any custom steps you need to take should be easily stuffed into a
script your users can run.

*shrug* Ideas worth what you paid for. :>
