Subject Re: Gerrit over gitolite? was: Git Tasks

For the ASF needs a primarily http-driven git environment, with many
custom hooks.  gitolite isn't really meant for what the ASF wants from
git repositories, I mentioned it mostly as an interesting related
implementation that we should at the last be mindful of.
