Git dumb-http push protocol goes over DAV. There are instructions in
Documentation/howto/setup-git-server-over-http.txt of the git
repository. They're quite old now, and I have no idea if they've
bit-rotted over the years. Hardly anybody uses that solution these days
(and it's much less efficient than the smart protocol).

The CGI ships with the rest of git.  Try "git help http-backend", which
has some sample config for Apache and lighttpd.
