That's how I do it, my post-commit script looks something like this...


AUTHOR=`svnlook author -r$REV $REPO`
DATE=`svnlook date -r$REV $REPO`

    echo "To: project-commits at domain.com"
    echo "From: subversion at domain.com"
    echo "Subject: Commit to $REPO by $AUTHOR (rev $REV)"
    echo "Author: $AUTHOR"
    echo "Date: $DATE"
    echo "Repository: $REPO"
    echo "Revision: $REV"
    echo " *** Changelog ***"
    svnlook log -r$REV $REPO
    echo '----------------------'
    echo " *** Changed Files ***"
    svnlook changed -r$REV $REPO
    echo '----------------------'
    echo " *** Staging Update ***"
    cd /var/staging
    svn update -r$REV
    echo '----------------------'
    echo " *** Test Results ***"
    perl Makefile.PL
    make test
    echo '----------------------'
    echo " *** Build Results ***"
    make tardist
    echo '----------------------'
