I avoid sysadmin work when possible - it's not something I enjoy spending time on.

Setting up gitolite is dead simple - setting up a git server manually manually might be 'simple' compared to other tasks, but it's still unnecessary work. Creating new repos is as simple as changing the config file and pushing it - no need to do anything on the server at all.

I see absolutely no reason TO do it manually, and that's the decider.
