2008-06-25Ship sample hooks with .sample suffixJunio C Hamano
We used to mark hooks we ship as samples by making them unexecutable, but some filesystems cannot tell what is executable and what is not. This makes it much more explicit. The hooks are suffixed with .sample (but now are made executable), so enabling it is still one step operation (instead of "chmod +x $hook", you would do "mv $hook.sample $hook") but now they won't get accidentally enabled on systems without executable bit.

2008-02-06git-commit: add a prepare-commit-msg hookPaolo Bonzini
The prepare-commit-msg hook is run whenever a "fresh" commit message is prepared, just before it is shown in the editor (if it is). Its purpose is to modify the commit message in-place. It takes one to three parameters. The first is the name of the file that the commit log message. The second is the source of the commit message, and can be: "message" (if a -m or -F option was given); "template" (if a -t option was given or the configuration option commit.template is set); "merge" (if the commit is a merge or a .git/MERGE_MSG file exists); "squash" (if a .git/SQUASH_MSG file exists); or "commit", followed by a commit SHA1 as the third parameter (if a -c, -C or --amend option was given). If its exit status is non-zero, git-commit will abort. The hook is not suppressed by the --no-verify option, so it should not be used as a replacement for the pre-commit hook. The sample prepare-commit-msg comments out the `Conflicts:` part of a merge's commit message; other examples are commented out, including adding a Signed-off-by line at the bottom of the commit messsage, that the user can then edit or discard altogether.

2007-06-07War on whitespaceJunio C Hamano
This uses "git-apply --whitespace=strip" to fix whitespace errors that have crept in to our source files over time. There are a few files that need to have trailing whitespaces (most notably, test vectors). The results still passes the test, and build result in Documentation/ area is unchanged.

2006-12-26hooks/commit-msg: add example to add Signed-off-by line to messageAndy Parkins
After checking to see if the commit message already has the target signed-off-by (for example in --amend commits), this patch generates a signed off by line from the repository owner and adds it to the commit message. Based on Johannes Schindelin's earlier patch to perform the same function. Originally, this was done in the pre-commit hook but Junio pointed out that the commit-msg hook allows the message to be edited. This has the aditional advantage that the commit-msg hook gets passed the name of the message file as a parameter, so it doesn't have to figure out GIT_DIR for itself.

2006-08-13sample commit-msg hook: no silent exit on duplicate Signed-off-by linesLuben Tuikov
git-commit would silently exit if duplicate Signed-off-by lines were found. Users of git-commit would not know it, unless they checked '$?'. This patch makes git-commit actually print out a message that nothing was commited since duplicate Signed-off-lines were found. Signed-off-by: Luben Tuikov <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2006-08-13Fix regex pattern in commit-msgLuben Tuikov
Between the count and the line output, some uniq(1) versions put a TAB character, not a space. Make sure both are handled. Signed-off-by: Luben Tuikov <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
2005-09-08Big tool rename.Junio C Hamano
As promised, this is the "big tool rename" patch. The primary differences since 0.99.6 are: (1) git-*-script are no more. The commands installed do not have any such suffix so users do not have to remember if something is implemented as a shell script or not. (2) Many command names with 'cache' in them are renamed with 'index' if that is what they mean. There are backward compatibility symblic links so that you and Porcelains can keep using the old names, but the backward compatibility support is expected to be removed in the near future.

2005-08-19Add commit hook and make the verification customizable.Junio C Hamano
There are three hooks: - 'pre-commit' is given an opportunity to inspect what is being committed, before we invoke the EDITOR for the commit message; - 'commit-msg' is invoked on the commit log message after the user prepares it; - 'post-commit' is run after a successful commit is made. The first two can interfere to stop the commit. The last one is for after-the-fact notification. The earlier built-in commit checker is now moved to pre-commit. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
