Hi There

The following properties has been enabled for the repository
1) Svn: log - Allow users to edit log messages
2) Svn: author- Allow users to edit author

The above mentioned properties has enabled only for one administrator so
that he can have the above two values

But later, the admin want to remove the svn: author command to avoid
changes to the author name and I have removed it. Since the svn: author
is removed, his EID gets populated on notifications instead of name, and
the admin wants the name back

Would adding svn: author mean that now the author in the history can be
modified again?

I believe Author can be modified, but in the script it is written like
user (i.e., admin) should only able to edit the logs, if that first
condition exists we will not get author name

While comparing user, even if we specify author it won't work

If username has to be displayed I think we need to remove user condition
also then this will applicable for all users

What to do say? Can this be done? Please share your thoughts?

Regards
