SVN commit comments

Post by 1337 » Thu Nov 01, 2007 9:03 pm

Sometimes it actually happens (wouldn't believe it myself) that you forget to set a comment for the SVN commit.

I thought that the omni potent svn should allow one to rewrite comments (implemented nicely in the TortoiseSVN GUI), but I wasn't successful in doing so.

Is this my problem or does the repository not allow such an action?

It's near to me, such a function. So it may be, that this is not supported, but hey, I'm not sure myself.

There is no way to alter svn repository after a commit (because of consistancy issues. You could do that manually but you wouldn't want to :D

So if you forget the commit text, you can always make a second very small commit with a log msg describing the previous one.
