Hi Cornelius,

Not sure how much is relevant to your situation, but here is how we do it:

We use git over ssh, managed on a central server using gitosis (
http://eagain.net/gitweb/?p=gitosis.git but available in the ubuntu
repositories). Gitosis also makes user management for small teams easy.

We use redmine (http://www.redmine.org/) for our issue tracking system which
ties in with git, so that we can use things like "refs #1234" to link a git
commit to an issue (or even "fixes #1234" to close it). It also has a
repository browser built in.

A couple of developers are using eclipse as their IDE with the Mylyn (
http://www.eclipse.org/mylyn/) which also links in with both redmine and git
to enable them to manage their work queue and do all their work in one

The other useful bit of software I have found useful for git is giggle (
http://live.gnome.org/giggle) which is just a GUI for browsing local git

Hope That Helps
