post-receive-email example hook: sed command for getting description was wrong
The sed command that extracted the first line of the project description didn't include the -n switch and hence the project name was being printed twice. This was ruining the email header generation because it was assumed that the description was only one line and was included in the subject. This turned the subject into a two line item and prematurely finished the header. Signed-off-by: Andy Parkins <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
