This is great. Now if someone would give me an example how to check the
  svn:needs-lock=true property, I would be off and running.

  Here's the short answer - Don't write your own hooks (see below)!
  
  Here's the explanation why:
  
   http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2007-10/0498.shtml
  
  Here's how to use someone else's hard work, so you have more time to
  play [insert your favorite time waster here]:
  
  Install SVN::Notify::Mirror[1] and SVN::Notify::Config[2]. Write a
  post-commit file like this:
  
           #!/usr/bin/perl -MSVN::Notify::Config=$0
           --- #YAML:1.0
           '':
             PATH: "C:/Subversion/bin"
           'path/in/repository':
             handler: Mirror
             minimal: 1
             to: "/path/to/www/htdocs"
  
  and you are done (if the repository is local to the destination that
  is). If your Subversion server is Windows (my condolences), you are
  going to have to write a CMD file wrapper.
  
  You won't be able to use UNC paths from a service account on Windows
  (because those are specifically limited to local machine access only).
  You could use SVN::Notify::Mirror::SSH (if you can install SSH on the
  remote server) which I have done quite successfully at my previous job.
  Or you can prod me a little and I'll write an FTP subclass... ;-)
  
  HTH
  
  John
