RE: Appropriate use of revision properties?

Hi all,

Our software house has also recently switched over to subversion. However,
we also use TestDirector (currently integrating with Subversion) to log
defects, etc.

We have found that committing defect fixes works best when forcing the user
to commit the fix of only one defect at a time. That way, if a commit seems
to break the software, an appropriate rollback can be performed.

Secondly, we intend to define a commit message format which will begin as
follows: "DefectID: 1234 log......".
