Ever wondered how to set up email notification with specific subject for a Subversion Project? I bet you did.
I was demanded today to conduct that in order to achieve it, here is what I did on a Debian Lenny server.
1. Copy your post-commit.tmpl to post-commit
cp -rpf /var/svn-repos/your_repository/hooks/post-commit.tmpl /var/svn-repos/your_repository/hooks/post-commit;
2. Open post-commit and put in it:
/usr/share/subversion/hook-scripts/commit-email.pl -s "TEST" $REPOS $REV email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
The “-s” specifies the subject you’d like to have to your e-mail notification.
That’s it if you have properly configured mail server at localhost. Then your email notification following each of thecommits revisions should start poping up to your email.
