[Bioc-devel] svn commit fails

We've added a pre-commit hook to our svn repo a few weeks ago which
purpose was to prevent developers from committing files that differ
only in case. See the announcement here:
It seems that this new setup is also enforcing comments for commits.
That was not intended. In fact I was not aware of this new behaviour
until I saw your post.
Just FYI the pre-commit script we are using is check-case-insensitive.pl
When we installed this script on our svn server, we also inadvertendly
activated some code that make sure that the log message contains some
text. Since this is indeed considered good practice, let's keep it for
now (unless there is some strong disagreement about it).
I added an informative error message so now you will get:
Transmitting file data .svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: MERGE request failed on '/bioconductor/trunk/madman/Rpacks/Biostrings'
svn: 'pre-commit' hook failed with error output:
Please comment your commit. Thanks!
