Automatic commit mails for git repositories


I tested the instruction from the Debian wiki [1] and they work nicely.

1) create the gits repository on Alioth

   alioth:~$ cd /git/pkg-common-lisp/
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp$ mkdir $PACKAGE.git
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp$ cd $PACKAGE.git
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git$ git --bare init --shared
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git$ vim description

2) set up the automatic commit mail

   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git$ git config --add \
    hooks.mailinglist "pkg-common-lisp-commits at lists.alioth.debian.org"
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git$ git config --add \
    hooks.bcc "$PACKAGE_cvs at packages.qa.debian.org"
   alioth:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git$ ln -s \
    /usr/local/bin/git-commit-notice hooks/post-receive

   /usr/local/bin/git-commit-notice is the Debian patched version [2] of
   upstream git/contrib/hooks/post-receive [3].  As explained at [2], my
   idea is to track as closest as possible upstream and my work is
   available at [4] (and /home/users/gismo/bin/git_post-receive-email as
   well).  I strongly advice to use the Debian one instead, at least for
   the official Debian Common Lisp Team packages.

3) push the local repository to the Alioth one

   local:~$ cd ~/var/lib/git/$PACKAGE/
   local:~/var/lib/git/$PACKAGE$ git remote add alioth \
    ssh://$USER at git.debian.org:/git/pkg-common-lisp/$PACKAGE.git
   local:~/var/lib/git/$PACKAGEt$ git push alioth $BRANCHNAME

4) if all is OK, the -commits@ list should have received the mail, as
   well as the subscribers to the PTS with keyword 'cvs' for the given
   $PACKAGE :-)

Suggestions, comments?

Thx, bye,
