Re: bug when combined with etckeeper




/etc/.git/hooks/pre-commit is installed by etckeeper and runs
etckeeper pre-commit, which deals with /etc/.etckeeper, including
running "git add .etckeeper". Why that file would match a gitignore
seems much less important than why git would run that hook in an
entirely different git repository.

       core.hooksPath
           By default Git will look for your hooks in the $GIT_DIR/hooks
           directory. Set this to different path, e.g.  /etc/git/hooks, and Git
           will try to find your hooks in that directory, e.g.
           /etc/git/hooks/pre-receive instead of in $GIT_DIR/hooks/pre-receive.

Hmm, the example "/etc/git/hooks" there is very similar to the
"/etc/.git/hooks" used by etckeeper. So my guess is you have
core.hooksPath set globally.
