Thanks for your thoughts. I am already aware of the possibility of check and reject though checking the presence of the appropriate property evaded me so far.

I quite feel it might contradict the purpose of a versioning system if that system would allow changes within it and not just store in certain way what was handed over to it.

Is it possible to change the content i.e. the value of the xml description attribute by commit hook? I had a look at red bean book and search the net for hints. I only found 'svnlook cat' to echo the content of the file but I did not find a means to alter the content. Is it possible to achieve or do I need to make a check on the content and fail the commit if the required bits of information in the content is not present?

Have you tried using keywords?


You might be able to use a pre-commit hook to verify that the keywords are present and that the svn:keywords property is set on the file -- not the modify the content but to reject the commit if they are missing.
