Um.  I think it depends.  There are lots of ways you could probably do
it, e.g., using sftp as your access method:

 (1) Make the archive group-writable and make sure all committers have a
     login on your system, and are a member of appropriate group (I think
     this requires some care with regard to umasks etc).

 (2) Establish a dedicated user-id (e.g. "arch-foo") for each shared
     archive (or for some set of shared archives), and let each committer
     put their own ssh public key in ~arch-foo/.authorized_keys.  You can
     establish the identity of committers via its patch-log ("Creator:")
     and gpg-signature.

 (3) Something with ACLs, I suppose probably with similar issues to (1).

Offhand, (2) seems simplest to me...
