I'm not sure what all factors are coming into play with your hook
scripts (such as how you're accessing the repository), but hook scripts
are executed by the server, *not* the client. The client has no
indication whether or not a hook script is even being run.

Passing the hook scripts to the client for execution is not only
technically impossible (there's no way of knowing the client has the
proper environment or even platform for running the script) but would be
a huge security problem for both sides as well.
