gitolite is easy.  Configuration is one directory with a configuration
file, one directory with ssh keys;

Configuration looks like this:

#+begin_src conf
repo orgmode
    RW+ = kleinrob
    R = @all
    config gitweb.url = address@hidden:orgmode
    config gitweb.description = "orgmode test"
    config receive.denyNonFastforwards = true
    config receive.denyDeletes = true

repo testing
    RW+     =   @all
    R = daemon
    config gitweb.url = address@hidden:testing
    config receive.denyNonFastforwards = true
    config receive.denyDeletes = true

I have ~35 lines of script, another 35 lines of instructions plus the
apache configuration to get gitolite running on a SLES server.  Doesn't
need cgit.

For Gogs installation on Debian Jessie I have a ~20 line
script (plus ~10 lines for postgresql; some more for MySQL). I'm using
only the gogs web server (no apache and/or nginx front-end). Have to be
careful copy- and pasting the script though, as I have to enter

Current git versions now also supports http-urls, so this shouldn'nt be
an issue for both gits vs gitolite.

Gogs requires users to be created for current contributors...

No preference from my side, though I have some emotional distance to
