It's not really nontrivial. I just have

% cat .password-store/.git/hooks/post-commit
git pull --rebase --recurse-submodules
git push --recurse-submodules=on-demand

It does not do everything you want, but it is very simple and most
people here use something similar.

If you are not using submodules, you can skip the recurse-submodules stuff.
