Re: Is it possible to delete last revision?

Thanks for your replies. I've copied the .tmpl file to
pre-revprop-change in hooks directory. Restarted the svnserve and use
the following command in the checked out (working) copye of the code. I
get the following error...
[root@zs irman]# svn propedit --revprop -r 42 svn:log --username xx
--password xxxx
No changes to property 'svn:log' on revision 42

I've set SVN_EDITOR to gvim but i get the No change message before gvim
loads up. Any ideas?
