Note to developers: Subversion post-commit hook

John Siirola has customized the subversion post-commit script to automatically annotate Trac tickets with information from subversion commit messages.

The script looks for strings that match "(?:#|(?:ticket|issue|bug)[: ]?)\d+". For example:

  ticket 123
  issue 123
  bug 123

When this regular expression is matched, the associated Trac ticket will be automatically updated to include the commit message to the ticket discussion.
