You also need a *pre*-commit or a *start*-commit hook that rejects any
commits that are not done by the svnsync user on your mirror repository. The
post-commit hook goes on the main repository to execute svnsync after each
commit. (This is, in theory, optional. You could have a crontab run svnsync
from another system entirely.)
Basically, on the mirror site:
- A "start-commit" hook that prevents anyone except the svnsync user from
- A "pre-revprop-change" hook that prevents anyone except the svnsync
user from making changes in the revision properties.
And on your main repository (optional):
- A "post-commit" hook that runs svnsync to syncronize the last commit to
