Fix commit-msg hook to allow editing
The old script allowed the commit-msg hook to not only prevent a commit from proceding, but also to edit the commit message on the fly and allow it to proceed. So here we teach builtin-commit to do the same. This is based on Wincent's patch, but redone with a clarified logic. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
