fair enough, I suppose an e-mail couldn't hurt. I'll explore that avenue 
if Khalid's links leave me with unanswered questions.

I'm also having a look here:
http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/user-manual.html

Seems to be a section on setting up public repositories, which I didn't 
see on my first run through google.

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).
