If you can get ssh access to the production server, you don't actually need to
put your repository online (publically) to update the remote server. It is
actually quite easy to tunnel the Subversion traffic via the same ssh session
that you are using to initiate the update.

Once you get ssh access, you may want to consider using SVN::Notify::Mirror
(available from CPAN), which I wrote specifically for this purpose. It makes it
trivial to set up post-commit hooks to keep multiple sites up to date with
commits to the repository. I have explicit support for tunneling over SSH.
