This is what I'm doing, too. Last week, when I searched the mail
archive for a method how to put the hook scripts under version control,
I found a tip by Mike Pilato, who suggested to add the 'svn update' to
the post-commit hook. Then committing from the test repository means
you get the live hooks automatically. It is also possible to put the
files in the conf directory under version control.

I'm going to send a tutorial to the list which describes how I did this.
Just wait a moment ...
