0. add to settings.php $conf['gittag_git_user'] = 'username';
set a string value with the username owning the code files (should be a different user than the user who is running the web server process).
1. create a user called gitpull.
this user must have the correct permissions to pull from the Git repository, and to update the site's code files on the web server.
2. add the webserver's user to /etc/sudoers, to allow it to git pull (www-data on Ubuntu Linux)
use the same user name as in settings.php:
www-data ALL=(gitpull) NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/git pull, /usr/bin/git tag -l, /usr/bin/git describe --tags, /usr/bin/git fetch --tags, /usr/bin/git checkout [[\:alpha\:]]*
