the messages about GIT on this list gave me the impression, that official 
apache people would start working on it so that I as an outsider wouldn't need 
to worry about it. - This was a misunderstanding on my side, I assume.

I started to learn Gerrit and wrote a message proposing it[1]. However nobody 
responded to it.

I'd strongly suggest evaluating gerrit before too much effort is spend with 
gitolite. AFAIK gitolite does support only the most basic needs of the ASF 
while gerrit may be a turn-key ready solution.

I offered my help in the mentioned email, but I hesitated to continue working 
on the task without any answer.
