See this section of the book:



    Because Subversion's revision properties are not versioned, making
modifications to such a property (for example, the svn:log commit message
property) will overwrite the previous value of that property forever.
Since data can be potentially lost here, Subversion supplies this hook
(and its counterpart, post-revprop-change) so that repository
administrators can keep records of changes to these items using some
external means if they so desire. As a precaution against losing
unversioned property data, Subversion clients will not be allowed to
remotely modify revision properties at all unless this hook is implemented
for your repository.

    This hook runs just before such a modification is made to the
repository. The repository passes four arguments to this hook: the path to
the repository, the revision on which the to-be-modified property exists,
the authenticated username of the person making the change, and the name
of the property itself.
