How to Change an SVN Commit Message Retroactively

Changing an SVN commit message retroactively involves two steps. First, the repository must have a hook enabled. Then the svn client must issue a propset command.

On the subversion server:

cd /var/www/svn/myrepository/hooks
cp pre-revprop-change.tmpl pre-revprop-change
chmod u+x pre-revprop-change
chown apache:apache pre-revprop-change
