Ich habe mir fΓΌr meine Bachelorarbeit einen post-update #git-hook eingerichtet, der nach einem Commit das erzeugte PDF in die ownCloud kopieren soll.
Wenn ich das Skript von Hand ausfΓΌhre, funktioniert alles. Leider tut es das nicht bei einem Commit (und Push).

Es beinhaltet nicht mehr als das:

#!/bin/sh
exec cp -u src/bachelorarbeit.pdf ~/Documents/HAW/.

Unter src liegen dabei die LaTeX-Dateien und auch das erzeugte PDF.

Jemand ne Idee, was ich verkehrt mache? πŸ€”

But anyone who sees the Russian activity as an antidemocratic outrage should be condemning the United States just as loudly, and treating the Russia story as some kind of unprecedented act of covert control is laughable.

Their players soon became convinced the land was in the midst of a massive conspiracy because how else could the utter lack of male citizens be explained.

ferns are ancient. back then they didn't have much memory (it was expensive) so they were generated procedurally. hence the way they look
