F17 - System user displayed in Gnome Login Screen

I am trying to configure gitosis; as such, I am creating a "git" user account on the system.

Gitosis works when I unlock the "git" user account. However, after doing so, the gnome login screen then displays "git" in the menu.

The "git" user has uid=gid=300. Gitosis still works if I delete the "git" user password, but it's still present in the login menu. If I lock the "git" account, then it disappears from the login menu but Gitosis stops working.

Also, editing /etc/gdm/Custom.conf doesn't do anything.

How do I allow remote login access with the "git" user, but not have the account displayed in the login screen?

You can use sudo to act as any other account, not just root!

Sure. I mean I can't lock the "git" account else anyone connecting via ssh (say to clone a repo) will get denied. I would like the account to be unlocked but not appear in the login screen.

I don't believe this solves the problem. "gitosis" isn't a command.
