Then wouldn't a "sudo chmod o+rw /var/www" before and "sudo chmod o-rw /var/www" 
after the git clone command suffice?

Another way could be to do it all in a user owned directory and use sth like 
$ cat /etc/apache2/conf.d/owncloud.local.conf 
Alias /owncloud /opt/web/apps/owncloud
<Directory /opt/web/apps/owncloud/>
        Options SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
        AllowOverride All
        Order allow,deny
        allow from all

Where /opt/web/apps/owncloud/ is owned by the user.
