Correct. The log message is a property of a revision, so it just
changes the property of that revision, without creating a new revision.

Oh I thought the task was to modify the log message in a hook script,
and I showed how to do that.

I don't know why you're having the other problem.

I just included --bypass-hooks for completeness. If you did not
specify that, you would also need to install a pre-revprop-change
hook to allow changing revision properties. Perhaps you have already
done this, in which case --bypass-hooks is not necessary for you. But
maybe someone reading these messages in the archive won't have
already set up that hook.
