I think you've already raised this before :)


My response:


As I said there my suggestion is to use the trac rss feeds. To do this:

1. Create a trac service associated with your project
2. Subscribe to trac rss feed from timeline

If you want email I suggest using rss2email on the rss feed. We're 
already using this solution for our work on kforge (with emails going to 
the developer list) and it works pretty well. Even better it allows you 
to track not just subversion changes but tickets as well.

I note that you already have a trac service set up for ukparse with a 


and the rss feed is:


NB: this includes everything: changesets (svn), tickets, milestones, and 
wiki. If you want svn only just change all those 'on's to 'off's.

If you really want to use post commit emails you could try uploading the 
requisite script using the dav facility but I'd strongly recommend the 
trac+rss approach.
