Finally getting around to dealing with this.  Sorry.  #life

There's not much to go on by way of information, but I believe that
SourceForge's svnnotify is a modified version of the script found here:

That one appears to really just want a revision number (integer) for the
--revision parameter.  But there does appear to be a way to tweak the
Subject line to achieve the formatting you desire:

   svnnotify --subject-prefix [Devlist]
   svnnotify -P [%d (Our-Developers)]

An optional string to prepend to the beginning of the subject line of the
notification email. If it contains '%d', it will be used to place the
number; otherwise it will simply be prepended to the subject, which will
contain the revision number in brackets.

So, I'll give the following a shot:

    --subject-prefix "svn commit: [svnbook source]:[r%d]"
