I have a Subversion repository which my team and I use for source control on a web application we are building. I would like to be able to have every commit to that repository automatically publish to our testing server. I have checked out the repository to a working copy on the server... is there any way to listen to the repository on the server so that every time somebody commits to the repository I can run a svn update?

Take a look at post commit. Here's an example.

Is there any way to implement that on the client side instead of the server side? I don't have direct access to the server where the repository is hosted, so doing a server-side hook will be difficult. – Brendon Dugan Oct 19 '11 at 18:31
