My question was very simple but all I get is pointers to the
documentation. So now, a consultant is the answer, hmmm?
What I need to do was simply done in CVS. I just asked for a
translation of the following:
=========== loginfo ================================================
# The "loginfo" file is used to control where "cvs commit" log
#information is sent. The first entry on a line is a regular expression
# which is tested
# against the directory that the change is being made to, relative to
#the $CVSROOT. For the first match that is found, the remainder of the
#line is a filter program that should expect log information on its
# If the repository name does not match any of the regular expressions
#in the first field of this file, the "DEFAULT" line is used, if it is
# If the name "ALL" appears as a regular expression it is always used
# in addition to the first matching regex or "DEFAULT".
# The filter program may use one and only one "%s" modifier (ala
#printf). If such a "%s" is specified in the filter program, a brief
#title is included (as one argument, enclosed in single quotes) showing
#the relative directory name and listing the modified file names.
# For example:
#DEFAULT (echo ""; who am i; echo %s; date; cat) >>

Can the above e done simply in SVN, if so provide an example?
