Can a git pre-commit hook add a file to the repo?
I'm keeping a text file of my git log in my working directory, and I have a script that updates it after a commit. This is fine, but the effect of this is that the version that is inside the repo is always one commit behind.
Is it possible to write a pre-commit hook that would call a script and add a file to the repo, in effect saving the text version of the log with the current commit info inside it?
I'm new to git hooks and have no idea whatsoever how this would work, if it's even possible. I appreciate the help!
