OK, well the maintainer-all bit can be done anyway. Is there any need
to change, or can the line:

          $(top_srcdir)/ $(distdir)/m4/*.m4;

just be added to the $(STAGEDIR)/%.m4 target in

To make the git hook work well, would it be worth putting the code
under the $(STAGEDIR)/%.m4 target in a separate file, which can also
be used for the git-receive hook? Then it's simply a question of
running exactly the same code in the git-receive hook.

As to how to write the git-receive hook, after a bit of searching I
found the following skeletal example here:


while read old_sha1 new_sha1 refname; do
    echo "ns: " $new_sha1;
    echo "os: " $old_sha1;

    echo "----"

    git ls-tree -r $new_sha1 | cut -f 3 -d ' ' | cut -f 1 | while read file; do
        git cat-file blob $file

    echo "----"


exit 1

I've submitted a support request on Savannah to ask how we set up the hook.
