Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but you have to commit locally before pushing to Github so that is not a problem (you do it on your machine before the `git push` to Github).

I don't know what the original comment was, but yes, this hook runs on your local machine. If you want a similar script to run on a server when people push to it, you want to use an update hook on the server.
