Automatic checkout of hook scripts under revision control

From: Tim Bingham <Tim.Bingham_at_comcast.net>

I'd like to put my hook scripts under revision control and have the copy on the svn server automatically checked out when a modified hook script is committed. (I'm coming from CVS where this is handled automatically by the "administrative files database" in CVSROOT, the files to checkout being listed in the "checkoutlist" file.)

I'm looking for advice and suggestions. e.g. is there a tool, a contrib or example that does this? Is there a reason that Subversion doesn't provide this feature and that I'll trip over if I try to implement this myself?

Committing the hooks scripts is, of course no problem. I can also see how the automatic checkouts can be triggered from 'post-commit'. Additionally, I expect to mimic CVS and create the equivalent of the "checkoutlist" file.

I not sure of the best way to update the copies of the scripts on the svn server. For example can I simply make my "hooks" directory a working copy? Is that safe?

Thanks,
Tim.
