I got the following error message when typing the above command:

   svn: Repository has not been enabled to accept revision propchanges;
   ask the administrator to create a pre-revprop-change hook

I renamed the "hooks/pre-revprop-change.tmpl" file to "pre-revprop-change"
and then I got this:

   svn: 'pre-revprop-change' hook failed with error output:
   [empty line]

The "pre-revprop-change" contains only these lines:


   if [ "$PROPNAME" = "svn:log" ]; then exit 0; fi
   exit 1

What am I missing?
