What is the time window? If the application is installed in a specific
location, it should be trivial to have local software monitor a network
accessible timestamp, or even have a cron job do an "svnlook" or "svn info"
based set of commands to determine if the repository has changed relative to
the local download of it. That keeps things client-based, rather than trying
to make the server track who's downloaded what to where and do things about

Basically, the SVN server has *no idea* where the clients downloaded things
to. It's just not part of the system, so it's very difficult to have the
server reach back out and touch everyone who's ever downloaded the stuff.
