Re: svn commit: propchange - r33150 - svn:log

Why this change? Since the last time I spent working on Subversion,
now that I'm back, I'm finding a crazy amount of attention spent to
the log messages. Adding periods, correcting typos, adjusting
indentation, etc. Shoot, I saw somebody correct a log from rev 1400 or
so just a week ago.

What is up with that? Where is the flexibility, and why so much
attention?

And with this change to my log message, you remove *MY* character, and
turn it into some bland message devoid of my personality. I *like*
shortening to "tho". I don't like you removing my personality from my
log messages. Are you also going to edit out a joke or quip that I
might put in there, in the future? Are all our log messages destined
for some bland, grey goo?
