Fixed update-hook example allow-users format.
The example provided with the update-hook-example does not work on either bash 2.05b.0(1)-release nor 3.1.17(1)-release. The matcher did not match the lines that it advertised to match, such as: refs/heads/bw/ linus refs/heads/tmp/* * In POSIX 1003.2 regular expressions, the star (*), is not an wildcard meaning "match everything", it matches 0 or more matches of the atom preceding it. So to match "refs/heads/bw/topic-branch", the matcher should be written as "refs/heads/bw/.*" to match "refs/heads/bw/" and everything after it. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
