because the permission of the hook is wrong:

-rw-rw-r--+ 1 hanska-guest forensics 48 2008-02-24 21:01

it must be executable. as you see from the permissions, i cannot change
it myself, and i have no idea why this 'suddenly' became non-executable.

if you think, a package is ready for release, release a version, like this:

git-dch --since $last_release_commit --debian-branch debian
<adjust debian changelog, e.g. correct version number if needed>
git commit -a -m "Releasing debian version 1.2.3-4."
git tag -a -m "Tagging debian version 1.2.3-4." debian/1.2.3-4

git push
git push --tags

...and then ping me to upload it :)
