.. but it seems you do....

A post-commit hook cannot send any output back to a Subversion client.

That's what I'd like!
I'd like to receive the results of the svn update called from the hook, but
as you say it's not possible.

So now the question could be: is this functionality desired by the users? I
think it could be treated by the designers and/or programmers of svn.

Is there any mechanism to propose an improvement?
