Create a sample of a script for a pre-push hook. The main purpose is to
illustrate how a script may parse the information which is supplied to
such a hook. The script may also be useful to some people as-is for
avoiding to push commits which are marked as a work in progress.

+# An example hook script to verify what is about to be pushed. Called by "git
+# push" after it has checked the remote status, but before anything has been
+# pushed. If this script exits with a non-zero status nothing will be pushed.
+# This hook is called with the following parameters:
+# $1 -- Name of the remote to which the push is being done
+# $2 -- URL to which the push is being done
+# If pushing without using a named remote those arguments will be equal.
+# Information about the commits which are being pushed is supplied as lines to
+# the standard input in the form:
+# <local ref> <local sha1> <remote ref> <remote sha1>
+# This sample shows how to prevent push of commits where the log message starts
+# with "WIP" (work in progress).
+while read local_ref local_sha remote_ref remote_sha
+ if [ "$local_sha" = $z40 ]
+ # Handle delete
+ if [ "$remote_sha" = $z40 ]
+ # New branch, examine all commits
+ # Update to existing branch, examine new commits
+ # Check for WIP commit
+ commit=`git rev-list -n 1 --grep '^WIP' "$range"`
+ if [ -n "$commit" ]
+ echo "Found WIP commit in $local_ref, not pushing"
