So, you know that CIA (which does all the work of parsing and tracking
commits) provides a service where you can register an xmlrpc procedure
for their server to call when it receives notification of some commit.
That takes all the work out of your side trying to figure out what is
going on and requiring you to get your hooks in.

See http://svn.navi.cx/misc/trunk/cia/tools/subscription_demo.py
for an example
