Keep in mind pre-commit tool != git-hooks, is like confusing JavaScript with Java ;)

By default pre-commit does not install any hooks. Yes, you can install them, but in 9/10 cases I don't, I only have an alias pc="pre-commit run -a" which I run before each git-review. In fact I was considering adding an optional feature to git-review to auto run this when the repository has a .pre-commit-config.yml file.

I am glad someone else opened the pre-commit subject before me. While it comes with its own challenges (git cloning), pre-commit resolves the problem of having predictable linter results by pinning them. Also it enables vey easy bumping of all of them.

AFAIK, over the last year I removed hacking from several projects and replaced it with pre-commit and I am much happier.

Not sure if others know but both bashate and doc8 can be used from pre-commit too.

Extra bonus: we can avoid the case where we end-up having tons of jobs performing linting or style checks.
