Craig,
 
Can you point me to an example or some instruction about adding custom properties?
 
Thanks,
Derrick

                I gather, from issue 1973, that subversion is not capable of setting a "log message template". If it is, please point me to the instructions on how to do so.
                
                I am trying to build a workaround solution for this problem on a per repository project basis for a windows OS running subversion. I.e. I need the capability for a different "log message template" for each project in a repository.
                
                This needs to work regardless of client, but typical clients will be subclipse, subversive, and TortoiseSVN (I understand Tortoise has a template capability).
                
                I've seen various workarounds such a "piping" from an editor or using Tortoise's built in feature, but these won't answer the call.
                
                Any advice is welcome.
                
                

        Unfortunately you might have to implement this for each client. The client has no contact with the server at the time the log message is generated (check-in time). And so the server can not decide this.
        
        You could propose guidelines for the users to follow and then do a pre-commit check to see if the log message format is correct.
        

One solution could involve putting the template in a custom SVN property in each directory. Just an idea.
