Subject RE: Setup post-commit mailer fails
Date Thu, 26 Jan 2017 18:33:53 GMT
Hello Pavel,
   I'm on a VM with Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 6.8 (Santiago) so I'm limited
to the packages I can get through yum, but I used the RPM to get Python 2.7 installed. I replicated
the files on our old Subversion server for the mailer.conf, post-commit, and the
The new server has Subversion 1.9.4 (r1740329 wd-1) installed. I'm not a Python programmer
so I don't know what packages are required to transition the script to work with
the Subversion 1.9 installed and the Python 2.7 version.
Here is the error I get during testing.

$ svn ci -m "addin readme" README
Adding         README
Transmitting file data .
Committed revision 2.

Warning: post-commit hook failed (exit code 1) with output:
You need version 1.5.0 or better of the Subversion Python bindings.

Is there an RPM or set of them I need to install to make this work? Is there a path issue?
Any steps necessary to edit the script?
