Description Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-10-05 23:21:28 EDT
Description of problem:
git as shipped by Fedora and RHEL does not include contrib/hooks/*, which
currently contains post-receive-email and update-paranoid. Upstream expects
these to be shipped, and the post-receive hook installed in each Git repository
refers to the contributed post-receive-email.

People who want to turn on commit notification by email should not need to
download the upstream tarball just to get one file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -ql git-core | grep contrib
Actual results:

Expected results:
contrib/hooks should be installed as part of git-core's documentation

Bumping severity. We should commit one way or another -- either patch out those
references to contrib/hooks in ${PROJECT}/.git/hooks/* or actually ship the files.
Comment 2 James Bowes 2008-03-26 08:57:57 EDT
Ok, as of git- in rawhide, the example hooks are included in the docs dir.
