That particular SVN client will be blocked. But if you have
two users committing at the same time, or if a user runs "svn"
twice in parallel, then the post-commit hook will be run in

Here's how I tested this. I created a new repository with
a post-commit hook that takes 30 seconds to run. I then
checked that it works, and that a normal commit took 30
seconds. I then did two commits in parallel, and that took
30 seconds. This shows that the post-commit hook is
running in parallel - if it had been run in series, then
it would have taken 60 seconds for 2 commits. (I also
checked the output of "ps" and observed the two
"post-commit" processes running).

~$ mkdir svnscratch
~$ cd svnscratch/
~/svnscratch$ svn --version | head -n1
svn, version 1.6.8 (dev build)
~/svnscratch$ svnadmin create repo
~/svnscratch$ cat >repo/hooks/post-commit
#! /bin/bash
sleep 30
~/svnscratch$ chmod a+x repo/hooks/post-commit
~/svnscratch$ time repo/hooks/post-commit
