Far be it for me, to contradict you on this, I'm no perl expert. but I can only tell you my experience of trying to set this up earlier today.
If I call the script directly, like below, I get the following:
sunny-jim bin # ./subversion-post-commit.pl /var/svn/svn.keergill.com/jetbyte 17
<p /><FONT COLOR='red'>Input parameter email has invalid value: ./subversion-post-commit.pl: `/usr/bin/svnlook info 17 -r /var/svn/svn.keergill.com/jetbyte' failed with this output:@keergill.com</FONT><p />
Clearly from the error message its trying to apply the repository value to the revision number parameter because its pulling off the parameters in the reverse order to that expected by the code.
If I then reverse the parameters, I get the following
sunny-jim bin # ./subversion-post-commit.pl 17 /var/svn/svn.keergill.com/jetbyte
<p /><FONT COLOR='red'>Topic state unrecognised</FONT><p />
So now I find that the call to CodestrikerClient::create_topic is failing because the topic_state parameter is not initialised. If I add 'topic_state => "Open"' to the parameter list on the call to create_topic everything works hunky dory (at least on first inspection, I haven't tried the script in the subversion post-commit hook again yet.
I use this scripts at my work, so they work fine.
The push and pop operators in perl work more in the metaphor of a
stack, not a list. So pop removes the first element from the list, not
