Re: Custom data on commit

You could enforce a log message format that puts the reviewer's name
first in the log message. TSVN can help: The tsvn:logtemplate property
will cause a predefined message template to be loaded into the Commit
message box that would remind developpers where to put the reviewer's

Some other possibilities - if you are willing to allow unreviewed code
to be commited:
1. The reviewer could modify a property on the code file(s), then
commit that change with a suitable log message. Your build system
could run a script to check that the property was up to date on each
source file, then issue a warning if any weren't.

2. Developpers could make their commits to branches, and the reviewers
would update the trunk. (This has two main problems: Updating a branch
WC from the trunk; and merging changes from different developpers
would no longer be mostly automatic)
