Hi - I certainly understand the desire, but since Savannah's purpose is a permanent and public repository of free software, being able to rewrite things that have been committed, including their log messages, isn't something that's enabled. At least that's my understanding. --best, karl.

For fixing a bad commit message, I tried
  svn propset svn:log --revprop
on a commit previously done by myself.
This was rejected as follows:

svn: E165006: Repository has not been enabled to accept revision propchanges;
ask the administrator to create a pre-revprop-change hook

Is there a way to enable this?
