Checkout, export and update hooks are available with my hook
dispatcher script:


It does require that you serve the repository using Apache though.
This would also be somewhat backward: The Subversion Apache module as
of Subversion 1.3 provides a high-level log; it is this log that my
script uses to dispatch the extra hooks. So to use the hooks just to
write a log file wouldn't be that sensible; you could just use the
log that mod_dav_svn already provides.
