Thanks Thomas, And yes I had read this and also I tried with git log but 
this won't works since git log is only created after the push, which means 
it won't compare the new push comment, it only compare the previous pushed 
comment to trigger the hooks. since what I need is trigger the hooks when 
new push comment not meet my prerequisites.
