Re: Resend: Output from post-commit hook

Yes - that was my idea originally - run the 'make verify' in the
pre-commit - and it does return an error to the client there, when
appropriate. But then I got all confused (New to Subversion) - if this
is pre-commit, the new version isn't checked in yet - so where is the
file that I'm trying to play with? In initial testing, it was using the
last good version that was checked in. Is there a repository admin
command that shows me the file that they're trying to check in? I took
a peek but nothing jumped at me. I'll do some more digging.

Thanks for bringing this up, I appreciate it!
