How to automatically update files on alioth from svn


I'd like to keep the files in the "Project Home Page" area of alioth in
our SVN repository, and I'm looking for a way to automate the updating
of these pages.

Ideally, we would use some post-commit hook that causes the changed html
file to be uploaded from svn.debian.org to alioth.debian.org, but I see
two problems:

- how to write the hook so that only specific files are uploaded, and
  put into the right location

- how to authenticate the transfer, since the svn repository and the
  webspace is on different machines.

Has anybody already set up something like this?  Or should I simply put
some syncing commands into my crontab on alioth and use anonymous SVN
