Subversion - Force Commit Message
Again this is a late blog post about some code committed several months ago, in this case the code was committed 09/06/2009
It is a very short python script to force a subversion commit message to be greater than 10 characters in length
svn export http://svn.saiweb.co.uk/branches/python/svn_force_message.py /path/to/your/svn/hooks/pre-commit chmod +x /path/to/your/svn/hooks/pre-commit
Note installation this way will replace your current pre-commit hooks file.
