Hmm. This is covered already in the pre-receive sections of githooks(7).
I wonder if it would be worth consolidating those and having one refer
to the other.

I'd be OK just duplicating the content in the meantime, but note that
the githooks version covers some more subtleties (like setting the count
to 0 when push options are negotiated but none are sent).

If we do go with the text above, there's a typo: s/for to/to/.
