Client Side Git Hook

A client side Git hook that I wrote and are using at work. Thought others might have a similar need. Basically it will check the selenium file for the owners and see if our group is in that ownership. If the file is not in our group a message is displayed saying that the owner will need to get permissions and code review by the owners.

Of course you can use any language you want to execute your client side git hook. I thought shell scripting would just be easiest in my case since it wasn’t going to be that much code and anyone that has git will either be running in windows with cygwin and thus of bash or they will be in Linux.
