SVN::Hooks::AllowPropChange - Allow changes in revision properties.


version 1.34


This SVN::Hooks plugin is used to allow revision (or non-versioned) properties ("svn:author", "svn:date", and "svn:log") to be changed by a group of users.

It's active in the "pre-revprop-change" hook.

It's configured by the following directive.


This directive enables the change of revision properties.

By default any change is denied unless explicitly allowed by the directive. You can use the directive more than once.

The PROP argument specifies the propertie(s) that are to be configured depending on its type. If no argument is given, no user can change any property.

Specify a single property by name ("author", "date", or "log").
Specify all properties that match the Regexp.

The optional WHO arguments specify the users that are allowed to make those changes. If absent, no user can change a log message. Otherwise, it specifies the allowed users depending on its type.

Specify a single user by name.
Specify the class of users whose names are matched by the Regexp.

        ALLOW_PROP_CHANGE('svn:log' => 'jsilva'); # jsilva can change svn:log
        ALLOW_PROP_CHANGE(qr/./ => qr/silva$/); # any *silva can change any property
