Hi Robert,
    If it is Windows, you can do with perl/Python.
Perl/Python can fetch the logmessage using "svnlook info -t TXN-NAME

[1] REPOS-PATH (the path to this repository)
[2] TXN-NAME (the name of the txn about to be committed)

are ordered arguments in pre-commit hooks (see pre-commit.tmpl).

Hope this will help you,
