<html><head></head><body><div style="font-family: Verdana;font-size: 12.0px;"><div>Hi,</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>I was absolutely sure that there is an option &quot;Warn on empty comments&quot; in the settings dialog.</div>

<div>I mean, it&#39;s such a necessary thing, I expected the authors would add it just for their own benefit.</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>Boy, was I surprised to discover that it doesn&#39;t exist. I couldn&#39;t beleive it. So many users of TortoiseSVN,</div>

<div>even the authors themselves must be using the software, and it still doesn&#39;t have this basic functionality?</div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Yes, I know, there&#39;s a pre-commit hook where you can add your own script. But that is for more complex</span></div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">or rare things, specific for each user. Enforcing comments is basic functionality in larger teams, where&nbsp;</span></div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">sources are updated very frequently. It&#39;s bread and butter. You can expect users to implement basic</span></div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">functionality using scripts and botch workarounds.</span></div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Entering </span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">comments during commit is very important, and everyone from time to time forgets to do it,</span></div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">which may cause </span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">problems to his teammates.&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">TortoiseSVN (and other turtles) should have such an important </span></div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">option&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">available out of the box, w</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">ithout </span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">hooks,&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">external scripts and other workarounds.</span></div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Please, add an option to enforce comments.&nbsp;</span></div>

<div>A&nbsp;<span style="line-height: 19.2px;">simple dialog box&nbsp;</span><span style="line-height: 19.2px;">&quot;Hey, you forgot to enter a comment&quot; would suffice.</span></div>

<div>&nbsp;</div>

<div>Thank you,</div>

<div><span style="line-height: 1.6em;">Darko</span></div>

<div>&nbsp;</div></div></body></html>
