RE: Re: Feature Request: Colored log

Regex' don't do the job, that I had in mind, as the scripts actually
have to change the colour of a line, once that rev has been build.

As far as speed goes, don't you already have to talk to the server to
get the log property? I know nothing about the internals of SVN server
comms, but I would have hoped, that you can in the same round trip get
any and all properties you need. Also, I guess, if you made the feature
optional, then the danger of people chasing you would be reduced and
even if they track you down, you would always have the defence of "Well
YOU turned it on, didn't you?!"

I know it's very much a nice to have feature, but for us it would be,
well, nice to have. ;-)

You could have a single repository-wide property that contains
regex/colour
pairs.
