RE: Is it possible to have a trigger script replace user ID (eid) with name in error messages?

Hi Ryan

In pre-revprop-change, this hook is enabled

if [ "$PROPNAME" = "svn:log" -o "$PROPNAME" = "svn:author" ]; then exit
0; fi

echo "Changing revision properties other than svn:log is prohibited" >&2
exit 1

And I author name while editing log, but here author can be edited.

See the attachment!!

So What I want now is wherever EID comes, it should convert into Name
and I guess we can try writing a wrapper stating if the EID is this ..
User is XYZ and sends that as log message.

Please share your thoughts

Here's the relevant part of the pre-revprop-change hook that you
asked about before and that I helped you with:

if [ "$PROPNAME" = "svn:log" -o "$PROPNAME" = "svn:author" ]; then
        if [ "$USER" = "e383084" -o "$USER" = "crowdadmin" ]; then
                # allow this change
                exit 0

Let's be clear on what this does: this ALLOWS the svn:log and
svn:author revision properties to be changed by your administrative
users e383084 and crowdadmin. It does not change the property on any
revision. It only ALLOWS those properties to be changed. You haven't
yet shown any script you're using that actually changes those
properties (for example with a command like "svn propset --revprop -r
123 svn:author 'newauthor'").

I still don't understand how you're getting "Vishwanath" to appear
e.g. in the log if the username you connect to Subversion with is
