Which people, and what are they doing?  The silence here has been

Who raised those requirements, and where did that discussion take
place?  I don't recall any decision to do any of this by star chamber
and secret cabal, and frankly, moving the goalposts on this is a great
way to have it never actually happen.  Is that your intention?

Gitosis does not, as far as I can tell, have that delegation
capability, but I've come up with a way to do this:

1.  Use git-shell.  Yes, this does involve creating one shell account
for each project, but git-shell is, by design, very short on
exploitable capability.

2.  Make the .ssh directory a git repository.

3.  Edit .ssh/authorized_keys and push via git.
