SVNBot software is a Jabber bot for monitoring SVN repository.
Setting things up
Register for a jabber account using any conventional jabber client (like Psi, Exodus, Gajim, etc). Personally I use Psi.
Add all the people who should be notified about updates into the contact list.
Check out the repository you want to monitor into a folder.
Modify the svnbot.ini file accordingly, then run svnbot.php
Notifying the people who are using alternative networks
Although svnbot works with jabber only, it's possible to set it up to notify these who are using alternative IM networks (like ICQ, MSN, AIM etc). To do this you will need to find appropriate jabber -> legacy network gateway. Register with the gateway of your choice and then add users to svnbot contact list. Once they are added svnbot will automatically note it and will notify people you added.
