I'm not familiar with the setup but I think it uses the

I think you would need the pusher to push to the correct place and
possibly have the server reject commits to the wrong places, having
your commits end up somewhere you didn't intend them to would be

It wasn't authenticated/approved at all, from the git-daemon manual page:


           This serves git send-pack clients, allowing anonymous push.
It is disabled by default, as there is no authentication in the
protocol (in other words, anybody can push anything into the
repository, including removal of refs). This is solely meant for a
closed LAN setting where everybody is friendly. This service can be
enabled by setting daemon.receivepack configuration item to true.

I guess that could be handled by the standard hooks that send
email/IRC/etc messages, or maybe a new hook for this purpose.

I don't have a git server and I can't find any documentation for
branchable about it; I basically discovered it by accident.
