I think that integrating git-annex support into ikiwiki, and then
folding in the contrib gallery plugin could be a good way to go. ikiwiki
already has web-based uploads (drag-n-drop-to-browser even). Tho it would
not cover your non-public case, unless you did something tricky with
apache htaccess.

Unfortunately I have not been able to get the authors of git-annex and
ikiwiki to sit down together and integrate their software yet.
