:: changes that allow, for example, editing of the author or addition of log messages.
set repository=%1
set revision=%2
set userName=%3
set propertyName=%4
set action=%5

:: Only allow the log message to be changed, but not author, etc.
if /I not "%propertyName%" == "svn:log" goto ERROR_PROPNAME

:: Only allow modification of a log message, not addition or deletion.
if /I not "%action%" == "M" goto ERROR_ACTION

:: Make sure that the new svn:log message is not empty.

How to update Subversion the nicest way?

Typically you install the lastest version of subversion, then run "svnadmin upgrade" (which often does nothing at all - repository format upgrades are rare).

You should, of course, take a backup first.

The upgrade notes are part of the release notes.
