Subversion doesn't have built in support for email notification.
Instead, it need to be have a hook script configured to send email
notifications. See Chapter 5 of the SVN book for more information on
hook scripts.

SVN does, however, provide a sample email notification hook script
(written in Perl) that you can use to get started with email
notifications. You'll find this script (called commit-email.pl) in
the tool/hook-scripts directory of the Subversion source.
