Maybe I was too vague: it used to work with .11p3 and the ?category argument.

I noticed that "Change" has a category, and SVNPoller uses it for all
changes it creates.
It's not documented on the Change class, but SVNPoller reads:

"A single category associated with the changes that could be used by
schedulers watch for branches of a certain name AND category."

I'm not sure I understand that line correctly, but can I use that to
solve this problem? (Test setup isn't up and I don't wanna try on the
live box).

SVNPoller(..., category="changes")

Thanks in advance,
