So I am trying to get a post-commit hook working on my Apache Subversion server, specifically I'm trying to send email to my Google account as described on this link.
After setting the permissions for the script and the working copy to the same user and read/write access it started causing MERGE errors when users tried to commit.
After some reading I found out that it was because of the post-commit hook not working and found out that by typing
svn - ./post-commit commit ../ 250 mailer.conf
I get this error:
> annerajb@annerajb-desktop:~/Desktop/TotEM_SVN/hooks$ env - ./post-commit.test commit ../ 250 /var/lib/python-support/python2.6/svn/fs.py:27: DeprecationWarning: The popen2 module is deprecated.

I am not sure why cmd_args is empty if I am passing it a value.
