If you have a template in the rcsinfo file, and then write a script to
test various items are present in the file, if one of the mandatory
items is not present, you do a sys.exit(-1)(in python) and it is suppose
to stop the commit and not proceed. Well I created a script that looks
like this


feature = overview = False

for line in lines:

     line = line.strip()

     if line.startswith('FEATURE_AFFECTED:'): feature = line[17:] != ''

     if line.startswith('OVERVIEW:'): overview = line[9:] != ''

if not feature:

   print "You must enter the FEATURE AFFECTED"

   ret = -1

elif not overview:

   print "You must enter an OVERVIEW of the fix"

   ret = -1

else: ret=0



There are four things in my template, but only two are mandatory. Yet
when I leave either or both of the mandatory items out, it will print to
the commit screen the correct print line, but yet it still moves onto
the commitinfo file and processes the script we have in there. But I
don't want it to process the commit unless it is correct with the
mandatory items filled in. Is this a bug or what am I doing wrong?
