Re: Hook to check for a presence of file before committing

SVN has a pristine copy of the checked-out files along with the working copy. When you issue a commit, SVN compares the pristine and the local files and _only_ sends the diffs. So the presence of any file doesn't automatically mean that it will be visible in the commit _unless_ it changes every time.

Hope this helps.
