post-commit/commit-email issue

From: Chien-Lung Wu <cwu_at_deltartp.com>

Hi, there:

        I successfully install and run subversion (0.21.0) on Linux (redhat
7.2). However, I still have some questions
on post-commit/commit-email functionality.

        Followings are my detail test on Subversion:
        1. Install Suberversion server on machine (linux) and
Subversion clients on window NT4.0
            For the communication/access between server and clients, I set
up apache2.0.45/WebDAV. So I can
            access repository through http.
        2. Create a repository on Subversion server
                svn create /svn/repos/R3
        3. Retsrat httpd (web server)
            On httpd.conf, I add following directive:
                <Location /svn/repos/R3>
                        DAV svn
                        SVNPath /svn/repos/R3
            And then re-start webserver.

        4. On Subversion server (/svn/repos/R3/hooks), I do:
            a. copy post-comit.tmpl to post-commit and make sure it is
            b. check commit-email.pl and make sure it is executable

              For verifying that post-commit is hooked, I modify the
post-commit to add one line:
                copy /svn/repos/R3/hooks/y.txt /sv/repos/R3/hooks/x.txt

              Therefore, through checking the file x.txt, I can verify the
whether subversion server trigger
                   post-commit. (And "yes", it is)

        5. On subversion client (window NT 4.0), I checkout R3 to my working
                svn co

                (it works well. And now I have a copy of R3 on my local
working diretcory)

        6. edit and add a new file, called README
                svn add README (it works.)

        7. commit this change.
                svn ci --force -m "commit README" (Why do I need to use

        8. Go back to subversion server. First, I get x.txt, that means
post-commit has been triggered.
             BUT I DON"T receive any email, regarding this commit. Why?

        9. If I execute commit-email.pl from Subversion server on the
command line,
             perl commit-email.pl /svn/repos/R3 1 cwu@deltartp
            then I can receive e-mail from subersion server. Therefore, I
assume that commit-email.pl works

        10, Anything wrong between subversion server and post-commit? Any
configuration needs?

The post-commit hook is as following:

# Here is an example hook script, for a Unix /bin/sh interpreter:

#echo "This is REPOS=$REPOS" >> y.txt
#echo "REV=$REV" >> y.txt
echo $REPOS >> y.txt
echo $REV >> y.txt
cp /svn/repos/R3/hooks/y.txt /svn/repos/R3/hooks/x.txt
#commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" commit-watchers@example.org
perl commit-email.pl "$REPOS" "$REV" cwu@deltartp.com
log-commit.py --repository "$REPOS" --revision "$REV"

Anything wrong with post-commit?
I also try to make sure the input (REPOS and REV) from subversion server;
however, I find they are "empty".
Can anyone show me any hint to overcome this problem? Appreciate your help.
