I don't think you'll find that feature in Subversion. Though, again, you could write a script, and instead of directly calling "svn commit", you would call your script, which would "svn commit" in your working copy and again in the system configuration directory. If there are changes in both places this would result in two revisions with two log messages, of course, and the commits would not be atomic.

I believe he's thinking of "svnput" whose source is here:


Or you could probably write something equivalent using any of the language bindings.
