Hello all,

I have had good use of the following helper script when preparing
a commit action. It was iriginally thought of in 2014 and it saw
the most recent change in November 2016, having served me well
ever since. The script is tailored for Inetutils.

The comments are written in my native language, since it was never
ment to be public in any way, but I believe the code still to be
intelligible. My usual habit is to execute this script, and also
to direct the intended patch text through `spell', prior to doing
a commit for Inetutils. Thereby I have an opportunity to identify
changed files that I forgot mentioning in `ChangeLog', finding
bad spelling, and deciding where I prefer Queen's English over
American English! Once the commit is done, the script is contrived
to compare revision head with the next previous commit, so it continues
to mention missing file entries.

I have never made any use of hooks with Git, unlike with Subversion,
but this script of mine could possibly be rewritten and adapted for
some similar purpose.

Best regards,
  Mats E A
