To add my 2 cents worth: I have a post-commit hook which does return
a message to the user in case it fails. I think this has been discussed.
The way I understand this is: When the hook script writes to stderr, this
message will only be picked up and displayed by the client if the script
exits with a non-zero return code, i.e. it fails. If it doesn't fail (that's how
I understand Annick's question) and you still want to send a message by
writing to stderr, this message will be silently discarded by the client.

Hope this helps.
