      Description

      A handful of users have requested the CVS feature of log message templates,
      where the repository specifies initial text to come up in the editor when a user
      performs a commit.
      
      The most natural implementation of this feature depends on some kind of
      repository-to-client configuration.

          I'd like to push for this to be worked on, as it would make it much easier to
          integrate Subversion in with external systems such as SCM integration tools (an
          example of which is Scmbug - http://www.mkgnu.net/?q=scmbug).
          
          This is a functionality that I've missed since moving from a Rational
          ClearCase/ClearQuest based organization to using SVN, and would open the door to
          some handy scripting shortcuts.

          I too would like to express my interest that this feature be added. It would
          allow better integration with utilities for appending to Bugzilla on commits,
          based on the presence of 'BugId: ' strings in the log message.

          I would also like to add my support for this feature request. This is a feature
          I sorely miss at my working place, where we require log messages to contain a
          related bug id for easier tracking of which changes are related to a bug and so on.
          _Please_ implement this feature soon.

          I'm willing to bounty this feature.  Are any others willing to contribute? Dan?
          Chris? Sven? I'm having a hard time imagining that no one else has a need for
          this.  ~BAS

          +1 - my current employer is migrating from CVS to Subversion and uses commit
          message templates extensively, and it's kinda embarrasing that CVS actually has
          a piece of functionality that Subversion doesn't.  My last employer used them as
          well and had the same problem when moving to Subversion.

          Here's a thread in which Karl Fogel proposed using inherited properties as a way
          to get log message template functionality.

          +1 this would make it much easier to integrate svn into a bug tracker system
          with log message templates making sure that the developers know what information
          to enter into the commit log.

          +1 for this feature.  I agree with others comments that this would help with the integration into other 
          workflows, and there are situations where the project leads don't actually have access to, or are denied 
          access to, the admin bits that would allow pre-commit hooks.

          In the 'log-message-templates' branch, I began working on a pretty roughly-hewn
          implementation of this feature based on the inheritable property support (which
          is new in Subversion 1.8.0).
