It's the existence of a properly-named file in the hooks directory. If
there's a file named post-commit which is executable (so in Windows it
would need to be post-commit.bat, .exe or .cmd), the libraries will
call it when the post-commit trigger fires.

If you're running an actual Subversion server (svnserve or Apache),
svn commit doesn't trigger this at all, it's purely controlled on the
server. If you're using file:///, then I guess you could say that
svn.exe is triggering it, but it's the same libraries that the server
process would use to do it.
