Email postcommit hook, subscription, properties ....

Hey y'all. I have a few repositories with a bunch of users, and a
zillion files/folders inside.

The users wish to have email alerts when somebody changes a file of
interest. So I'm trying to provide something like "watch this item" ...
It is natural to look at post commit hooks, but it is not appropriate
for every user to get email about every change. It would simply be too

I read through archives of this mailing list, and in the past the answer
was "use subnant, you can set email properties on files & folders."
Unfortunately, subnant requires mono, Nant (which requires pkg-config
and mono), and Nant contrib (which requires I don't know what.) I am
having trouble satisfying the dependencies of subnant (though I'm still

So I'm looking for suggestions and/or alternatives. Any ideas?

Here's a typical behavior, that I think would be ideal:

- Suppose Matt is interested in the
svn://svn/repo/project/excalibur/dac1 tree, full of files & subfolders.
- Matt would like to set a property on that folder, so all changes to
that folder (or any of its subfiles & subfolders) would generate an
email to him.
- When Matt is no longer interested in that folder (presumably he
finishes that project) he would like to discontinue watching it, so he
could simply remove that property.

Suppose the above behavior is similarly true for many users, and many
files / folders.

Thanks for your advice.
