upload-pack: add a trigger for post-upload-pack hook
After upload-pack successfully finishes its operation, post-upload-pack hook can be called for logging purposes. The hook is passed various pieces of information, one per line, from its standard input. Currently the following items can be fed to the hook, but more types of information may be added in the future: want SHA-1:: 40-byte hexadecimal object name the client asked to include in the resulting pack. Can occur one or more times in the input. have SHA-1:: 40-byte hexadecimal object name the client asked to exclude from the resulting pack, claiming to have them already. Can occur zero or more times in the input. time float:: Number of seconds spent for creating the packfile. size decimal:: Size of the resulting packfile in bytes. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
