We have something similar in TortoiseSVN: client-side hook scripts.
Some people use those to send out notifications after a commit, some to
copy files to their webserver, ...
http://tortoisesvn.net/docs/release/TortoiseSVN_en/tsvn-dug-settings.html#tsvn-dug-settings-hooks

But TortoiseSVN gathers all information purely on the client side. So
I'm not sure if this feature in svn would require a server-side change
or hook script to do that?
