I want to set up hooks for Git, and I don't know how to. Is there any documentation somewhere? Basically, I'd like to do what ikiwiki-makerepo does, but manually.
Why? Because I want to have a special layout to my repository. Especially, I want to include at the root level some special files:
- the nginx configuration
- the script that installs the nginx configuration to the system
- the script that starts the fast-cgi wrapper
And I want the ikiwiki sources to be in a subdirectory
src/ and the generated files in
out/ (where the nginx configuration points).
So, what is the special
post-update hook generated by ikiwiki-makerepo? I noticed it was an ELF file, why not a script? What does it do?
