   Maybe write a small "svncommit" wrapper that does something like:


   cat <<EOT > template.tmp
   Active Issues:
   Resolved Issues:
   # TODO: check VISUAL, EDITOR and have a fallback....
   $EDITOR template.tmp
   # TODO: Check return code from editor, quit if it fails
   svn commit -F template.tmp "$@"
   # TODO: maybe only delete this if the commit is ok?
   rm template.temp

   Heck, you could write a wrapper for the whole of the "svn" command,
   and intercept calls to "commit". Unfortunately, that won't pick up
   the list of files and stick them on the bottom, unlike the default
   incantation of $EDITOR. You might be able to do some trickery
   with "$@" and "svn st" to work out, and then fiddle with
   template.tmp to remove them before you call "svn commit"...

   I hope you've got a nice way of rolling this out to everyone
   though :-)
