I have a pre-commit hook at that will verify your
log message is at least 10 characters, and will also verify that your
files don't end in whatever suffixes you're trying to avoid. It
doesn't do a size check though.

Does your hook succeed in preventing files with your banned suffixes
from being committed? Is your problem just the size of the files? What
about comment length? Does your hook prevent people from writing
commit messages shorter than 10 characters?

After you calculate "filesize" add the following line:

echo "File size for $f is $filesize" 1>&2

Then, make the last line in your hook "exit 1" instead of "exit 0".

This will print out the file size of all the files you're attempting
to commit, and then fail the hook since the hook always exits with a
exit code of 1.

When you attempt to commit, you should see a failed commit and a bunch
of lines telling you the file size of each file. If not, you'll get a
better idea what the problem might be.
