[Buildbot-devel] SVN repository changes notification by mail

The svn_buildbot.py post-commit hook script does its job pretty well. It 
works for us when the SVN repository can connect to the build master 
with a non-standard destination port.

Unfortunately, our subversion repository is hosted on an external server 
with which we can't do much things. For example, we can't execute a 
post-commit script that make an external connection with a non-standard 
destination port. Moreover, we don't want to make our buildmaster 
public, and we can't redirect connections made on port 9899 on our 
router to our buildmaster.

So, the only solution i can come up with is parsing the notification 
emails sent by an existing post-commit hook script, and then crafting 
something similar as the message sent by the svn_buildbot.py to the 

Maybe i missed something. What do you think ?

Thank you very much for your attention.

All the best,

Julien Gilli
