Re: unable edit existing log message

Subversion is going to try to execute the script as "pre-revprop-change".
Unlike on Windows where file extensions carry such valuable information as
"This can be executed" (.EXE, .COM) and "What kind of program or script is
this" (.BAT versus .EXE), to a Unix-y shell interpreter file extensions mean
nothing. So it's safe (required, even, in Subversion's eyes) to name your
script "pre-revprop-change" -- with no extension -- and include a hint to
the shell interpreter as to which program to use to parse that sucker in the
shebang line (the first line of the script):

   # Here's my pre-revprop-change hook script blah blah
   # blah...
