Git push returns error code 403

When pushing to Bitbucket Server 1.0.0, it responds with the error code 403.

$ git push url directory
Cloning into 'directory'...
error: The requested URL returned error: 403 while accessing url
fatal: HTTP request failed


You do not have permissions to push changes to this repository. 

Bitbucket Server 1.0.1 and above do not respond with a 403, instead they give an explicit error description in the output of the git command.
