Re: Editing Log Entry is Failing

Its been a while since I've done it, but these thoughts came to mind:

1) did you set the hook script to executable?
2) revprops are unique by revision, so maybe your url needs to be:
svn://home.srvr/path_to/repo/ ( vice what you wrote:
svn://home.srvr/path_to/trunk/) ?
