You need to create a hook within the hooks directory of the
repository. What that looks like will depend on your OS. If it is
Linux you can use one of the template scripts already in that
directory (just need to rename and modify as required). If you have a
Windows repo server there is a sample batch file in our docs.

What that doesn't mention, although it is kinda obvious, is that the
batch file should be called pre-revprop-change.bat
