Read the book sections in Chapter 9 on propset and propedit. Basically,
you can do this three ways:

1. svn propset svn:log --revprop -r <REVISION> "My corrected log
message" <URL>
2. svn propset svn:log --revprop -r <REVISION> -F
<file-with-corrected-log-message.txt> <URL>
3. svn propedit svn:log --revprop -r <REVISION>

The first is if your log message is just one line; the second is if your
log message is an a text file, and the third will open up your text
editor to edit the log entry directly.

<REVISION> is the revision of your repository for which you want to edit
the comment; you can use HEAD or any of the other "special" revision
words here. <URL> is the URL of your repository; since you're editing an
unversioned repository property rather than a versioned file property
(the log message is attached to that entire revision, not to any one
file), you only need to give the base URL of your Subversion repository,
and not the full URL to the file itself.
