Simply create a post-commit hook like this (that is, an executable script
called /path/to/svnrepository/hooks/post-commit):

TEMPFILE=`mktemp /tmp/postcommit.XXXXXX`

AUTHOR=`svnlook author "$1" -r $2`
if [ -z "$AUTHOR" ] ; then
    AUTHOR="<Unknown>" ;

svnlook log "$1" >$TEMPFILE
echo "" >>$TEMPFILE
svnlook changed "$1" >>$TEMPFILE

mail -s "[SubVersion] $AUTHOR committed revision $2" some-list@somehost.net \


This will mail an email with the subject "[SubVersion] foo committed revision
123" to some mailing list. The body contains the log message from the user
and what files have been changed. Simple, but useful.
