Thanks for that, it's a useful approach.

The reason I asked was because I was wondering if there was something
intrinsically unsafe in using git as the superuser. I mean if a
daemon/process makes a socket call outbound, it's usually as the uid/gid
of the daemon, the least privileges to get the work done. 

Maybe my concerns are without foundation in this particular case? 
or if it was something to be worried about there'd be a warning or 
some such in the handbook.
