Is /pub/git/experimental set to be a shared repo?  What is the output

   $ git --git-dir /pub/git/experimental config core.sharedRepository

It should report true.  If not, set that via:

>>>>     $ git --git-dir /pub/git/experimental config core.sharedrepository true
Okay that was needed Todd !

Then check that you've set all the permissions as outlined below:

>>>>     # Set proper group ownership
>>>>     $ chgrp -R gitgroup /pub/git/expermental
>>>>     # Make all directories setgid
>>>>     $ find /pub/git/expermental -type d -exec chmod g+s {} \;

>>>>                           \( -perm /u+w -a ! -perm /g+w \) \
>>>>         xargs chmod g+w

Lastly, it's generally a good idea to only ever push to a 'bare'
repository, i.e. a repository that has no working directory associated
with it.  This isn't related to your permissions problem, but it is
something that can bite you later, so it's worth mentioning.  When you
create a remote repository, it should generally be done using either:

   $ git clone -q --bare some/git/url /path/to/new/repo.git
   $ git --git-dir /path/to/new/repo.git --bare init --shared=true

By convention, bare repositories end with .git.
That answers a long unanswered question, thanks !
Well, looks like thats got most of my problems and queries solved.
Just gotta remember how to do branches and work out how to update them against a moving svn project !
Thanks very, vrey much,
