And of course you have to actually pass the arguments along:



/usr/local/svnrepos/pyblosxom/hooks/post-commit.py "$REPOS" "$REV"

But you already knew that. I just forgot it in my example.

I also wanted to point out that the post-commit.tmpl file provided
with Subversion 1.3.0 already explains the current directory problem:
