+# To help with debugging and use on pre-v1.5.1 git servers, this script will
+# also obey the interface of hooks/update, taking its arguments on the
+# command line. Unfortunately, hooks/update is called once for each ref.
+# To avoid firing one email per ref, this script just prints its output to
+# the screen when used in this mode. The output can then be redirected if
+# wanted.
