I don't know. I have never set up a git server myself. I have quickly 
browsed through the basic documentation. At first sight I'm wondering 
what advantages does gitolite provide compared to a plain ssh+git setup 
similar to what we currently use for svn ?

Perhaps the ability to have multiple admins  that can manage the whole 
git setup, which I consider an advantage.

I didn't see a web interface (other than a reference to the external 
gitweb tool, which is used for the kernel). I don't know if we need one 
for I'm just thinking out loud as we had trac for svn. 
But for git we can use github as webinterface.

Without wanting to push you, did you have a (rough) time frame in mind 
to set something up for testing ?
