3) We create a shared "official" tree where a group of committers can
push directly. This is sort of the current model, just with enhanced
development possibilities aside from the official tree.
[This would be the least disruptive model, but it lacks a central
instance, which might or might not be an advantage]
I'd suggest going with this for now. We can always move to another model
later. But right now, it's quite well suited for us. The only thing I
don't know yet, is how to handle commit notices with such a shared git
It might be enough to look up how pkg-xorg handled that.

the shared-central repository model,
and the one person maintains the offical repository model (this is Linus's
prefered model, but he made sure all 3 work well with git).
It also discusses the hooks that can be used for push notifications. (git
push being the equvlent of SVN commit for a shared central repository
Specificly you want the "post-receive" hook.
"There is a sample script post-receive-email provided in the contrib/hooks
directory in git distribution, which implements sending commit emails."
