pre-commit hook to prevent me from accidentally checking in debug code
#!/bin/sh
#
# This hook prevents you from committing any file containing the
# words "do not commit".
#
# The idea is that I can add a comment to prevent myself from
# committing a change related to debugging or hacking.
#
# To enable this hook, rename this file to ".git/hooks/pre-commit".
