Re: Keeping stuff out of my repository?

Thanks, Toby,

But unfortunately, the Book says: "do not
          modify a commit transaction using hook scripts."

Essentially what I want to do is enforce the ignore list, not create more work for people importing their code base.  (I do not agree with the Book's assertion that people will learn good habits if I deny their commits -- they're more likely to just give up and email me a tarball.)

I suppose there's some kind of script I could write to continually walk the repository, or maybe use a pre hook to write a URI file of stuff to auto-delete.  Am I the only one who's ever had this issue?

You can reject commits with a pre-commit hook. See the text of
hooks/pre-commit.tmpl in any repo.
