Not entirely sure to see how that would work. This seems to mirror git
repositories, but we are not mirroring them here, what we want to mirror is the
ACLs from pkgdb to gitolite (that we have already) and to pagure (that we have
but need to improve/optimize).

Could you expand on what your thoughts were? Maybe I'm miss-understanding them :)

I am not completely sure how pagure worked under the covers, but I know it uses gitolite, at least that's what I'd read above. At The Linux Foundation, when I worked there, we mirrored bare repositories using grokmirror, and fast, too, with hundreds, sometimes thousands, of remotes as well. 

Maybe the crux of the problem is around compiling the gitolite.conf (and its plethora of sub-configuration files), so this might not be a solution for you. But if it's about syncing between two git resources, grokmirror would provide that functionality. It's been a while since I've worked with it, but we could chat on IRC next week and maybe setup an example. Only if that sort of thing would help though.
