There is no nice way to do this, sorry. Any output from the pre-commit
hook is discarded if no error occurs.
Usually notifications are sent from the post-commit hook not to the
SVN client but to some other channel, such as a mailing list, a website,
a feed, etc. For that purpose you might want to take a look at
svnpubsub, see http://www.apache.org/dev/cms.html#svnpubsub and
If you really want the SVN client to display a custom message after every
commit, as a crude workaround you could print the desired output to stderr
from the post-commit hook and always exit 1 from the post-commit hook.
But to the user this will always look like an error at first sight.
