Re: Pre-commit transaction modification question

This can also done automatically without any hooks. Just write a shell
script that checks out the repository (or updates a working copy), checks the
headers and updates them if necessary, then commits the changes.

Of course this is not so real-time as the header updates done at commit
time, but I think it is still acceptable.
