i need a tip to solve my problem with log-messages in our
subversion-repository. (see the mail-conversation with the tortoisesvn
team below).
there are message that contain mutated vowel and i need to find all them
and correct them.
f.e. i want to replace 'übergabe' by 'uebergabe' or if this is to
difficult only by '_bergabe'.

can anybode give me tips / commands to do that or probably there is an
tool (because the problem was already solved for another user)?

thanks for help
