What about a pre-commit hook that would mail the outstanding txn-name,
log message, author, and diff to a mailing list of folks who have the
bits to incorporate or refute a proposed change, and then essentially
stall the Subversion txn into a limbo state. After review one of the
bits-bearers could either abort the txn or merge it into the
repository. You'd want some Process() around this, perhaps custom
tools to handle the abort/merge, mailing the status back to the
submitter, etc. And, you could suffer out-of-dateness pretty
quickly/harshly since the Subversion server doesn't do any text
merging at all. But it still is an interesting line of thought, don't
ya think?
