Name

svk admin setlog — Set the log-message on a revision.

Synopsis

svk admin setlog REPOS_PATH --revision REVISION FILE

Description

Set the log-message on revision REVISION to the contents of FILE.

This is similar to using svn propset --revprop to set the svn:log property on a revision, except that you can also use the option --bypass-hooks to avoid running any pre- or post-commit hooks, which is useful if the modification of revision properties has not been enabled in the pre-revprop-change hook.

Warning

Revision properties are not under version control, so this command will permanently overwrite the previous log message.

Switches

--revision (-r) ARG
--bypass-hooks

Examples

Set the log message for revision 19 to the contents of the file msg:

$ svk admin setlog /usr/local/svn/repos/ --revision 19 msg
