#! /usr/bin/env sh
# This basic file was cribbed liberally from the post at
# but the Git commands have been updated for current best practices.
# Sanity checker. Alerts to STDOUT that the pre-commit hook is about to run.
# (uncomment to use)
# echo "Running the pre-commit hook..."
# Stash any unstaged changes so that they don't interefere with the test suite
