Using a pre-commit script (written in python)

For some odd reason tortoise SVN loves to commit empty commit sets. So I managed to get the following pre-commit script working under FreeBSD, seeing that the pre-commit.tmpl does not work as expected.

Subversion pre-commit hook which currently checks that the commit contains
a commit message to avoid commiting empty changesets which tortoisesvn seems
to have a habbit of committing.

Based on
and hooks/pre-commit.tmpl

Hacked together by Jacques Marneweck 


import sys, os, string


def main(repos, txn):
    log_cmd = '%s log -t "%s" "%s"' % (SVNLOOK, txn, repos)
    log_msg = os.popen(log_cmd, 'r').readline().rstrip('\n')

    if len(log_msg) < 10:
        sys.stderr.write ("Please enter a commit message which details what has changed during this commit.\n")

if __name__ == '__main__':
    if len(sys.argv) < 3:
        sys.stderr.write("Usage: %s REPOS TXN\n" % (sys.argv[0]))
        main(sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2])
