C.4 The commit support files

There are three kinds of trigger scripts (see section The Trigger Scripts) that can be run at various times during a commit. They are specified in files in the repository, as described below. The following table summarizes the file names and the purpose of the corresponding programs.

commitinfo

The program is responsible for checking that the commit is allowed. If it exits with a non-zero exit status the commit will be aborted.

verifymsg

The specified program is used to evaluate the log message, and possibly verify that it contains all required fields. This is most useful in combination with the ‘rcsinfo’ file, which can hold a log message template (see section Rcsinfo).

editinfo

The specified program is used to edit the log message, and possibly verify that it contains all required fields. This is most useful in combination with the ‘rcsinfo’ file, which can hold a log message template (see section Rcsinfo). (obsolete)

loginfo

The specified program is called when the commit is complete. It receives the log message and some additional information and can store the log message in a file, or mail it to appropriate persons, or maybe post it to a local newsgroup, or… Your imagination is the limit!
