disallow updating the named ref. Otherwise it should exit with
zero.
-The same hook is also called with an empty string as refname and
-no other arguments just before git-receive-pack exits. This can

-The exit code from this hook invocation is ignored; the only

Using this hook, it is easy to generate mails on updates to
the local repository. This example script sends a mail with
the commits pushed to the repository:
#!/bin/sh
- case "$#,$1" in
- 1,) # help packed repository pulled via dumb protocol.
- git-update-server-info
- ;;
- *) # mail out commit update information.
- if expr "$2" : '0*$' >/dev/null
- then
- echo "Created now ref."
+ # mail out commit update information.
+ if expr "$2" : '0*$' >/dev/null
+ then
+ echo "Created a new ref, with the following commits:"
git-rev-list --pretty "$2"

git-rev-list --pretty "$3" "^$2"

+Another hook $GIT_DIR/hooks/post-update, if exists and
+executable, is called with the list of refs that have been
+updated. This can be used to implement repository wide cleanup
+task if needed. The exit code from this hook invocation is
+ignored; the only thing left for git-receive-pack to do at that
+point is to exit itself anyway. This hook can be used, for
+example, to run "git-update-server-info" if the repository is
+packed and is served via a dumb transport.

+ #!/bin/sh
+ exec git-update-server-info
