1. Start simple. Write hook script that does nothing but "echo 'blah'
>> /tmp/testfile'. That way you can verify that svnserve is actually
running the script.

2. Get more complex. Run the script by hand and verify that mail is
being sent, or whatever. Debug that.

3. Use absolute paths to everything. Assume you have no environment
variables at all.

Most of the time, people have problem with hook scripts because they
assume that if you can run the script by hand, it will work when
svnserve or apache executes it. But usually svnserve and apache execute
the script in anemic environments.
