I know I'm an outsider (no TU, only did a bit of AUR developement
before), so I just have a question:

If the issue is having to create extra shell accounts, could it be
eliminated using gitolite/gitosis?  That would allow more fine-grained
control over the permissions of the different projects (which would
definitely come up if there are more projects hosted on the same
server). E.g. push privileges could be granted to people without TU
status when needed, or TUs can be kept off projects they are not
taking part in.

Just a thought.
