Description idefix 2011-12-10 17:30:11 UTC
If git is installed with the option contrib modules a script to send email if someone pushes changes to the repository is installed:

This script has no executable bit that causes after every update of git problems with the hook. The file:

has the executable permisson flag.
So it seems to be removed on the install step of ports.


Install the contrib module without removing the executable bit.
How-To-Repeat: Install devel/git with contrib option enabled.

  FreeBSD ports repository

  Modified files:
    devel/git            Makefile pkg-plist 
  Switch to installing contrib files using COPYTREE_BIN instead of
  COPYTREE_SHARE. The documentation in the hooks says you should set
  executable permissions on the hook before setting it up in a repository,
  but if you update git the permissions get reset. Just install the entire
  contrib directory with executable bit set.
  What we really need is a "COPYTREE_ASIS" that just leaves the permissions as
  they are.
  Note I am intentionally not bumping PORTREVISION as this is a minor change
  and this port gets updated fairly regularly.

Committed. You will have to manually rebuild and reinstall git to get 
this change or wait until the next significant update. Thanks!
