    Sadly, no it's not the right place.

    That script just generates cc email addresses
    for pre-formatted commit patches.

    It'd have to be a script that modifies the git commit subject line
    to the taste of the subsystem maintainer.

    Right now, I use a commit script that's something like:

    echo "$1: Remove unnecessary semicolons" > msg
    echo >> msg
    #cat >> msg <<EOF
    #Unnecessary semicolons should not exist.
    git commit -s -F msg $1

    There could be a modification to $1 (path)
    or some such.

    Maybe a script like
    or something.

    Care to write one in sh/bash/perl/python/c/ocaml/c#?

    As far as I know, the only subsystem pedants^H^H^H^H^Hople
    that care much about the commit subject style are
    arch/x86 and sound.

    I can understand the desire of these subsystem maintainers
    to have a consistent style. I think though that requiring
    a subject header style without providing more than a
    general guideline is a but much.

    I'd use any other automated tool you want to provide.

    cheers, Joe
