Is this why I can't get the last update on pacman git repo (using http) ?

I remember you warned me several times to enable the post-update hook when
using http.
"# An example hook script to prepare a packed repository for use over dumb transports."

Could it be what is missing there?

I switched to git protocol, and it worked fine. And I have no reason for
using http over git, so that's fine, but I was just curious :)
