how to make git pre-commit behavior depend on commit message?
I know that to make git check the commit message before committing you can implement
hooks/commit-msg. But now imagine a case where you want to let the
hooks/pre-commit script behave differently based on the commit message?
For example (in a very loose environment) you might want to check whether you have a
[nocheck] tag in your commit message which always let's your commit-check pass.
Or - in a more strict environment - you might want to have every file commented (and thus listed separately).
Or you might want to check the ticket ID against the related files.
Is there a way to accomplish this apart from doing the actual check in commit-msg (which seems to be counter-intuitive)?
