+# POST-COMMIT HOOK
+#
+# The post-commit hook is invoked after a commit.  Subversion runs
+# this hook by invoking a program (script, executable, binary, etc.)
+# named 'post-commit' (for which this file is a template) with the 
+# following ordered arguments:
+#
+#   [1] REPOS-PATH   (the path to this repository)
+#   [2] REV          (the number of the revision just committed)
+#
+# The default working directory for the invocation is undefined, so
+# the program should set one explicitly if it cares.
+#
+# Because the commit has already completed and cannot be undone,
+# the exit code of the hook program is ignored.  The hook program
+# can use the 'svnlook' utility to help it examine the
+# newly-committed tree.
+#
+# On a Unix system, the normal procedure is to have 'post-commit'
+# invoke other programs to do the real work, though it may do the
+# work itself too.
+#
+# Note that 'post-commit' must be executable by the user(s) who will
+# invoke it (typically the user httpd runs as), and that user must
+# have filesystem-level permission to access the repository.
+#
+# On a Windows system, you should name the hook program
+# 'post-commit.bat' or 'post-commit.exe',
+# but the basic idea is the same.
+# 
+# The hook program typically does not inherit the environment of
+# its parent process.  For example, a common problem is for the
+# PATH environment variable to not be set to its usual value, so
+# that subprograms fail to launch unless invoked via absolute path.
+# If you're having unexpected problems with a hook program, the
+# culprit may be unusual (or missing) environment variables.
+# 
+# Here is an example hook script, for a Unix /bin/sh interpreter.
+# For more examples and pre-written hooks, see those in
+# the Subversion repository at
+# http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/tools/hook-scripts/ and
+# http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/trunk/contrib/hook-scripts/
