RE: Pre-commit hook

Thanks for the input, but, my question is not about my process (yes, devs test before commit). The question is whether I can provide feedback to the user from a pre-commit hook.

Am I the only one that hears major warning bells going off here?

What does this script have to do with version control? It sounds like something that should be run on a build server. Or, perhaps it should be something done on the client first. Are you devs not following:

edit, update, TEST, commit workflow?
