That's the whole point. git has excellent support for distributed 
repositories, branches and merges between branches so there would only 
be one repository where each individual organisation can add their own 
branch (or branches) and merge changes between them. Always assuming 
changesets doesn't conflict, ofcourse, but that shouldn't often be the case.

The individual organisation branches will live on the organisation side 
only, whereas the 'master' head lives on sourceforge (as a 
web-repository or whatever). There can be several official branches as 
well. It might present problems for the various organisations if they 
have identical names, but that's their headache.

Try it out; http://www.kernel.org/pub/scm/git
It comes in RPM's now as well.

I seriously recommend having a look at the gitk tool as well. It's the 
best I've seen so far, and git is only 6 months old.
