I'd also recommend trying myrepos and wanted to add that you can avoid
using a bare repo by syncing with git annex [1].  This works regardless
of whether you decide to check your changes into git annex (which tracks
versions of a file and where it exists but not the actual content) or
track the content as usual with git.  I don't do this for my Org files
(like Myles, I use plain git and a central bare repo), but I use git
annex for other files whose content I don't want to track with git.
