I was aware that gerrit has something a bit like this.

But this:

is a submission tool.  It doesn't do the server side.

I don't think you can use it with a simple git server (and you
wouldn't want to grant wide access to push to random branches on your
git server).

The right way to look at this is that perhaps we could make a
different server-side that isn't gerrit.
