Motivation for this change

Noticed that lots of commits were being generated that didn’t actually change the hash, and then I noticed that commits weren’t being made automatically even though they were supposed to be. Sorry @NeQuissimus!

Things done
  • Tested using sandboxing (nix.useSandbox on NixOS, or option sandbox in nix.conf on non-NixOS linux)
  • Built on platform(s)
    • NixOS
    • macOS
    • other Linux distributions
  • Tested via one or more NixOS test(s) if existing and applicable for the change (look inside nixos/tests)
  • Tested compilation of all pkgs that depend on this change using nix-shell -p nixpkgs-review --run "nixpkgs-review wip"
  • Tested execution of all binary files (usually in ./result/bin/)
  • Determined the impact on package closure size (by running nix path-info -S before and after)
  • Ensured that relevant documentation is up to date
  • Fits

Because bash was being run with -u, if COMMIT wasn't set in the
environment the script would just crash here, rather than exiting
The revision applies to the whole SVN tree, not just the scripts
directory, so the revision will increment sometimes with no change in
With nothing staged and no paths given, previously this wouldn't
actually do anything.
