The entire engine for repo.or.cz is open source, so if you like that
site's interface, you could start from there.  (link to the source is

Git comes with a web browsing service built in, but it does take a little
bit of configuring.

As for multiple committers, ssh accounts seems like the easiest way to go,
to me.
