When I look at http://www.norsof.org/svn/ in a web browser, I just
see the directories conf, dav, db, hooks and locks, and the files
format and pre-revprop-change.cmd. There are two things wrong with
this. One, it means you have not configured your Apache to serve this
directory as a repository. You need to move that svn directory
outside of the DocumentRoot and then set up Apache to serve the
repository like this:

<Location /svn/>
        DAV svn
        SVNPath /path/to/where/you/moved/svn

Two, the file pre-revprop-change.cmd will have no effect directly
inside the repository directory. It needs to be in the hooks
directory if you want Subversion to use it. But it also appears to be
empty so maybe it's a leftover file from when you were testing
