[PROPOSAL] post-commit should be able to report back to client

Hi all,

I'd like to have the post-commit script's output reported back to the
This would be useful if the post-commit script does things that may

Use case
We're using SVN not just for versioning but also for rolling out html
and php files to a test server.
I.e. the post-commit essentially does an "svn export" to the directory
where the test server's Apache will look for it. "svn export" didn't
always work, mostly due to permission issues. However, the error
messages first got silently ignored (bad!), then logged to the system
log (not much better, since looking at it requires root privilege), and
we're finally considering writing the messages to a log file and mailing
it to the committer (still not optimum).
What we'd really like to have would be if the SVN client displayed the
error messages from the script, just as it displays messages from the
other hooks and from svnserve itself.

Anybody willing to second this?

This proposal has several tangents, but I wanted to check first whether
it is useful at all :-)
