Okay, that’s part of what I was looking for. I am using svnserve. However,
according to "man svnserve" I am using it not as a daemon but with svn+ssh
so I have to specify the global file explicitly somehow.

But I can add that common path in each repo’s hook-env, that’s clear.

I think that only applies to the daemon as I read the docs.

That referenced example is for an individual repo.

But if it is true for svn+ssh, does one just drop a svnserv.conf file in
directory /etc/subversion.?

I’ll send doc suggestions after I get a working solution (PRs accepted?).

Thanks, Stefan.
