I just placed an echo command that copies the script parameters to a log file and verified that the log file
is being changed with each commit. This verifies that the hook is being executed.

I copied the commit-email.pl script into the hooks directory (the same directory as the hook scripts). My
hook script is invoking this as ./commit-email.pl Further, the email gets sent properly if I invoke the hook
script within the env - command which also clears out all environment variables including path.
