Well, that depends. I actually store the pre-commit hook in the repository
itself. I use a softlink in the hooks directory to point to the local location
where the pre-commit hook is stored. I then have a post-commit hook that
causes the admin areas of the server to be "svn up"ed if those areas
were touched in the commit. This includes the access control files
and the hooks and all of the administrative CGIs and repository browsing
tools (all of this is part of the insurrection project) This is in
live operation
right now in multiple organizations.
