The Perl module SVN::Log::Index, and the command line tool it provides, sli,
can be used to generate a searchable index of Subversion commits.

You can update this index periodically, or drive it from a post-commit hook
script. You can then use sli to query the index.

For example, to find all commits by 'nik' that affected the path
/trunk/foo.c you could do:

   sli search --query 'author:nik and path:/trunk/foo.c'

You can also search log messages. For example, if your log messages contain
ticket numbers of the format 'rt#<number>', and you want to find all commits
that mention ticket 123 you'd do this:

   sli search --query 'rt#123'

The documentation for SVN::Log::Index, and sli, on CPAN, contain more examples.
