As the title says, I see from here: http://docs.webfaction.com/software/git.html that I am able to create different users for the Git app. But, what is the point?

Is it that each git user has access to different repos? But it looks like they all would have access to the whole app, which contains all the repos. I think there is a very simple and clear reason behind, but I just can't seem to understand it at the moment.

Could somebody shed some light, in plain simple english?

I am in no way an admin, or even very smart, but wouldn't this allow you to keep track of who made which changes?

The most common use case is that of multiple users within the same organization who need access to the same set of repos.

But they are never asked for a password for accessing git. As long as they have SSH access they can pull push and clone fine... Is it really only for looking at the repos throught the web interface?

If they are pushing and cloning over HTTP, then they should be required to authenticate. Feel free to open a support ticket if you'd like us to investigate this for you.
