So, are you looking for a particular file in the root of the repository?

If you're looking for a particular file, you can use "svnlook cat" or
"svnlook info" to see if the file exists. If the file exists, both of
these commands will return a "0". Otherwise, they'll return a non-zero

The first argument given to your hook script is the location of the
repository. The second argument is the transaction number of the
commit. The svnlook command takes these both as arguments in almost
all of the sub-commands.

If you're looking to see if any file is present in the root of the
repository, then you can use the "svnlook -t $TXNO -N tree $REPOS .
command and parse its output. Directories names end in a "/". File
names don't.
