> From: Bill Armstrong > Is it possible to force end-users to insert comments when they Commit > there files? This is something of a FAQ :-). The answer goes something like this: - Yes, it's possible, use the postcommit hook; - Don't bother, because lazy developers will just enter "AAA" or "Latest version" (and some will work out how to write the script that does that for them automatically). You don't just want *comments*, you want *meaningful comments* - and they're hard to detect automatically. User education is far more effective at getting meaningful comments into the repository. A cricket bat would seem to be an appropriate user education tool... :-). - Peter
