Well if you are after people who are interested I'll definitely put up
my hand and please sir I would like some more.

I currently have ~50 repositories. Most of which are created by
developers in another country. (I'm in Australia and they are in New
Zealand) The CGI interface allows them to set it all up themselves as
they need them. Our policy is to use a separate repository for each
application/library we write.

I even use few repositories for tracking entire file systems for
embedded linux devices. I use a wrapper script so that id's,
permissions, devices and symlinks are all recorded and extracted correctly.

I would love to see any changes you have made. I have had to make a few
changes myself to your script, just to get it to install, as a number of
paths were hard coded (even though you had set a variable for the task
just not used it, in some cases). Currently I also have a problem with
the mailing hooks. For trunk development there is a separate mail
message for every file that is checked in but they are all identical.
For a branch there are three mails per file. I was thinking of changing
it to allow chaining of hooks so that the scripts that come with
subversion could be used aswell. The other change I was thinking about
was a more automatic description in the mail headers. I manually go
though and change them to include the repository name in the subject.
This takes the guess work out of wondering which repos. someone just
worked in.

Personally I would love to see this application expanded and I think you
did an excellent job for first release.
