Re: Post commit hook on linux.

No, sudo is not being used. I am calling the svn command directly in
the post-commit.
The svn command is owned by root but the setuid flag is not set.

Here's an excerpt from the script:

    svn=/usr/local/bin/svn
    look=/usr/local/bin/svnlook
    grep=/bin/grep

    ${look} dirs-changed ${REPOS} -r ${REV} | ${grep}
    "Navigator/trunk/Develop" > /dev/null
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
      ${svn} update /mnt/Disc/Develop -q > /dev/null
    fi

    ${look} dirs-changed ${REPOS} -r ${REV} | ${grep}
    "Navigator/trunk/Products" > /dev/null
    if [ $? = 0 ]; then
      ${svn} update /mnt/Disc/Products -q > /dev/null
    fi
