Commitinfo matches against the _path_ and _doesn't include the
filename_.  So, your ^db.* would match any _path_ relative to the
repository root beginning with 'db' and could care less about the name
of any particular file.

The commitinfo script does recieve a list of the files being committed
so you could do the checking there.

If you're doing what I think you're doing, only bothering to update the
serial during a 'make install' might be as useful and less troublesome
to implement.
