my understanding is that github is just a service and a frontend. I do 
use github, but I'm trying to set up my own git server.

I'm moreso wondering what's involved with creating a multi-user git 
server. Do I have to create a user on the remote box for each user using 
the git server? Or does git handle this in some other way?

I tried looking for a piece of "github" software, but I didn't find much.

Again, I'm not asking anyone to write me a book, but if anyone knows of 
a guide that would help in this endeavour, I'm all ears. I've tried 
using gitosis, but I'm not sure what it's doing or how it works. If 
there's a "vanilla" way to go about this, I'd rather use that (so I can 
try to understand what's going on).
