Hooks can't change the content of a transaction:


What the hook does was in the first post of this thread:

This script can be called from a pre-commit hook on either Windows or
a Unix like operating system. It implements the checks required to
ensure that the repository acts in a way which is compatible with a
case insensitive file system.

When a file is added this script checks the file tree in the
repository for files which would be the same name on a case
insensitive file system and rejects the commit if there is a match.
