I having one repositry serving a couple of web-projects.
I use the following python script to update web-server working copyes.
Hope this will help.

import sys
import os

result = 1

# get repo->local copy dictionary
filename = '/var/svn/hooks/web-conf.py'
if filename and os.path.isfile(filename):
        sys.exit('Unable to execute ' + filename)

# get repository and revision from args
        repository = sys.argv[1]
        revision = sys.argv[2]
except IndexError:
        sys.exit('Not enought parameters given')

# find working copy for passed repository
        local_copy = local_copyes[repository]
except KeyError:
        sys.exit('Couldn\'t get working copy for given repository...')

# get list of changed directories
fd=os.popen('svnlook -r ' + revision + ' dirs-changed ' + repository)
changed_dir_list = fd.readlines()

# get the top dir changed
        top_changed_dir = os.path.commonprefix(changed_dir_list).strip()
except IndexError:
        sys.exit('No dir\'s changed by this commit')

update_path = local_copy + top_changed_dir

if os.path.isdir(update_path):
        result = os.system('svn update ' + update_path)
        sys.exit('Sorry, \'' + update_path + '\' is not a directory...')

Contents of the /var/svn/hooks/web-conf.py :
local_copyes = {
        '/var/svn/test': '/tmp/wwwsvn/test/',
        '/var/svn/web': '/var/www/'
