Allow pre-export hooks

Bug #173274 reported by Jelmer Vernooij on 2007-12-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
bzr (Debian)

Bug Description

 affects bzr

"bzr export" should allow hooks that can be used to, for example,
run autoconf. This would make it easier to, e.g. export an upstream
tarball ready for distribution without having to run such tools

bzr-builddeb currently has support for this, but I think it
should be more generic.

I'd love to have this too. For Mailman, we'd use it to generate our documentation from .tex files. We'd like to keep just the .tex files in bzr and run 'make docs' or somesuch just before export builds the tarball.
