You write a pre-commit hook. It goes in an executable file with the
name "pre-commit" in the hooks directory of your repository
directory. The pre-commit hook can then call any other files you have
located anywhere.

Please see this recent thread for some discussion of this very issue,
including some reasons why you may not want to do all of that in the
pre-commit hook, and a suggestion of what you could do instead:
