No, you're thinking of a pre-commit hook, whose stderr output is sent
to the Subversion client when exit status > 0. A post-commit hook's
stderr, on the other hand, is never seen by anybody, and its exit
status is not used for any purpose either. This is a bug and is being
worked on:


As previously suggested, try appending something to a temporary log
file within the post-commit hook to see if that part of the script is
being reached. For example:

/bin/echo `date` "about to send email" >> /tmp/hook.log
