I'm sorry, I didn't realize it was relevent:

/usr/local/bin/svnadmin dump "$REPOS" -r "$REV" --incremental > /backup/increments/"$REV"
/bin/cat > /backup/increments/mailer << EOF
From: fishgills@fishgills.net
To: md@deliberate.com
Subject: Commited: "$REV"
/bin/cat /backup/increments/"$REV" >> /backup/increments/mailer
/usr/exim/bin/exim -oMr DM_OUTSIDE_0_DELIVER_Inbox_none -t -f fishgills@fishgills.net < /backup/increments/mailer
I fixed up the paths; I emptied my PATH; I ran it on the command line
-- fine.
But no go when I do a commit.
Is there a log or error output somewhere that I can be looking at?
BTW, I wanted to use mailer.py but it needed imports that didn't seem
to come in with the subversion distribution so I gave that up. I wrote
a little shell script just to get things going.  It's better if I
don't bring up another python interpreter to do this anyway.
Thank you for your help.
