Done commit bots entered #debian-fonts, next step is setting up commit
hook for already created repository. I've placed a script called
set-git-hooks under /git/pkg-fonts I ran it but it failed on these

W: fonts-hanazono.git not writable
W: fonts-ipamj-mincho.git not writable
W: fonts-rufscript.git not writable
W: fonts-senamirmir-washra.git not writable
W: fonts-sil-andika.git not writable
W: fonts-sil-padauk.git not writable
W: fonts-sipa-arundina.git not writable
W: fonts-tlwg.git not writable
W: fonts-ubuntu-title.git not writable
W: pkg-fonts.git not writable
W: ttf-anonymous-pro.git not writable
W: woff-tools.git not writable

This is mainly because of permission issue, so I request each package
owner to login to git.d.o and run following

      cd /git/pkg-fonts

After this change is integrated all new commits will land in

I've modified the setup-repository script so that commit hooks are
placed in all new repo's that will be created.

I will write all these stuffs on a wiki page in my free time as

Thanks for your patience :-)
