Smart Commit hooks are firing multiple times when doing a pull request

Our team uses the Smart Commit hooks to log time and comments between Stash and JIRA.  The problem occurs during a pull request.


We create a pull request and edit the commit message to remove all #time and #comment statements to ensure that they don't fire again.

However, when the pull request is approved all of the commit messages from the branch are added back into the commit message and the Smart Commits fire again (doubling the time logged and comments made).

How can this be avoided?

What events are you handling?

We are using the #time and #comment Smart Commit syntax.  We didn't enable any special hooks in Stash.
