I just found this today by coincidence, which is a workaround, and
would only apply to those using the Unix command line:


SVN_EDITOR="rm svn-commit.tmp && cp $REPOS/hooks/log.tmpl svn-
commit.tmp && vi svn-commit.tmp"

I believe TortoiseSVN also has some equivalent of this; you'll have
to check their documentation or mailing list.

There is already an enhancement request for this issue:


In any case, if you want to enforce such a logging template, for now
you should write a pre-commit hook which rejects commits whose log
messages do not conform.
