Re: hook script basics

Hi Ryan,

Call it a bug if you like but I like the env being intact as is :)

I do understand that by keeping propagating the env from Windows,
that problems can occur from mis config'd systems,etc... (some thing
common in batch queuing systems).

However it made my life easier.

If you want to confirm, create a post hook with;

set >> c:\temp\foo.txt

And for the record, I would rather have had the repo server on Unix
however it was already in place when I started at my current gig.
