Like commit-msg? Yes, it would have been nicer if it were named verify-commit-message or something. Old mistakes are harder to change because of inertia. It is not a good excuse to knowingly make a new mistake to add new exceptions that the users need to check documentations for, is it? > And it's not confusing, A simple fact that Ilya asked the question tells us otherwise ;-) I personally do not see an immediate need for post-update-branch, but if the new hook is about intervening an operation, it would be a good idea to name the hook with "pre-" like other "before doing something, validate the operation and forbid" hooks. Otherwise it would be impossible to later add "post-update-branch" for whatever reason without inviting "why does pre-update-branch hook is misnamed as just update-branch, when other validation and post-action pair are named pre-something and post-something?". -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
