I usually use github repositories or repositories local to any organization that employs me. Now I should install a local standalone repository with git for a team. I could get it to work with gitweb + standalone git server but my team leader said that there could be a problem because it only allowed "one user". But I could set up 2 different ssh keys and commit from 2 different machines as 2 different users.

What software would you suggest for this constellation?

You could use Gogs or its fork Gitea. Both are free and open source, allow you multiple users, are easy to set up, and work reliably.

I'm using Gitea for a while as it has a more flexible team driving the development, and am pretty much satisfied with it. It offers an experience comparable with Github, so you have:

  • multiple users, each with multiple repositories
  • for each repo, an issue tracker and a wiki

Being cross-platform, you should find your suitable binary easily. They also have a demo set up, if you want to take a look first.
