Re: Pre commit hook being ignored

Try a test. Have the hook report the length of the message, and the message
itself to STDERR. Put angle brackets around the commit message, so you can
make sure there are no spaces at the beginning or end of the message. Then
change the hook to purposefully reject the commit. This way, you'll see the
length of the message and the message itself.

Also make sure that the hook has execute permission.
