Hi Tejinder,

Perhaps it's related to the "Tip" in:


Or it's also in <repos>/hooks/post-commit.tmpl

# The hook program typically does not inherit the environment of
# its parent process. For example, a common problem is for the
# PATH environment variable to not be set to its usual value, so
# that subprograms fail to launch unless invoked via absolute path.
# If you're having unexpected problems with a hook program, the
# culprit may be unusual (or missing) environment variables.

so try /path/to/svn ... maybe that will sort you out.

AFAIK You can use stderr in the pre-commit hook,
from <repos>/hooks/pre-commit.tmpl:

# If the hook program exits with success, the txn is committed; but
# if it exits with failure (non-zero), the txn is aborted, no commit
# takes place, and STDERR is returned to the client. The hook
# program can use the 'svnlook' utility to help it examine the txn.

I believe the other pre-... hooks follow the same behaviour.
