Thank you for all your help. Yes one of my main problems was thinking that
$REPO is the fully qualified path of the transaction including both the svn
and the project path! I see that you modified the grep to
^testproject/trunk. I would've never thought of that thinking that $REPO
includes everythings! Now that I see the modifed script, I have a much
better understanding. As for -n in echo, what version of svn are you using
on your sever? I think our linux svn version is 1.4.

Thanks for all your help.

Ah, now that I've played with it a bit, I see that Subversion automatically
prints a newline at the end.

So, this is a version that seems to work for me:


# A pre-commit hook script to ensure that no changes are commited to the
# repository without a valid log message.



$SVNLOOK dirs-changed -t "$TXN" "$REPO" | $GREP '^testproject/trunk/' >

if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then

        # For testproject, make sure that the comment starts with a (bug) number
        $SVNLOOK log -t "$TXN" "$REPO" | $GREP '^[[:digit:]]' > /dev/null

        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
                echo -n 'For this project, you must start your log message with a bug
number.' 1>&2
                exit 1


        # For other projects, no bug number necessary, just make sure the comment
isn't empty
        $SVNLOOK log -t "$TXN" "$REPO" | $GREP '[a-zA-Z0-9]' > /dev/null
        if [ $? -ne 0 ]; then
                echo -n 'You must enter some text in your log message.' 1>&2
                exit 1
