RE: RE: Empty commit

Yes I could, but that would work only if the commit is in a script and
only for that script. I have another script that does a commit I have to
do the same in that script too. Also, it does not solve the problem of
the users moaning that subversion didn't tell them that they hadn't
actually committed anything.

If possible, and I'm starting to believe that it's not, I would like to
do something repository-wise.
