Re: Synchronization between SVN server and Developement web server

Two args get passed to the commit script: the repository and the revision
number. You can use the svnlook command to then get a list of the files
that changed. Assuming you have set a variables REPOS and REV to match the
command line argument passed in you can run this command:

    svnlook changed "$REPOS" -r "$REV"

There are other svnlook command you may want to play with as well (diff or
dirs-changed?). You can parse the output of this command (it's similiar to
the svn stat command output) to determine what files changed and thus what
directories must be updated on your dev web server. Just make sure you
handle deletes, adds, updates, and property changes if you need to.

Fyi...I didn't follow what you were doing on the development web server, but
for continuous builds, Hudson is a good build tool that will poll your
repository for you by project and redeploy your code. It sounds like you
may have a home grown solution doing something similar.
