Nope. All users access the repositories as user "gitorious". Permissions
and file ownership are the same regardless of what user did the push.

You could create another key for your user account and upload it to
gitorious. Then, make a new clone from scratch.

Alternatively, you could move /root/.ssh/id_rsa* to ~/.ssh/. You could
also move the already checked-out repository to your home. In both
cases, make sure you change the ownership of all files.

If you still have trouble after following the above tips, come to #sugar
on irc.freenode.net for interactive support. Besides me, you can find
many others who use git regularly.
