The script looks very good. Thanks for contributing that, Andreas!

Hope this helps


I have also fixed the post-receive hook script on vasks:/git/debian-edu/_hooks_/post-receive.

This hook has to be copied into every <project>.git/hooks/ folder (which will replace the old post-receive version at that location).

The post-receive hook does three things:

  o notify us on IRC via KGB (not FBI anymore)
  o send mails to hooks.mailinglist and hooks.announcelist (for tags)
  o send ,,bug is pending for release'' mails to Debian BTS if a
    changelog entry gets committed that contains a ,,(Closes: #XXXX)''

I have replaced the post-receive hook for every package fully or partially under my umbrella (all of them are in debian-edu/pkg-team). I recommend doing so with the other already migrated <project>.git folders.
