You're right. That's why I suggested to not use a runtime param for the
hook script but a setting in the working copy (e.g. property, server
side configuration, inherited property, ...) which only states if the
hook script
- has to be called (if not, then the template is static and should also
be stored in the wc)
- has to be called with the complete file list (i.e. TSVN would have to
prevent the user from entering a log message until all files which get
committed are known)
- has to be called, but without a file list
