Subversion is now hosted in the ASF wide repository of the Apache foundation, so we don't
declare the policy ourselves. (Although I think the original Subversion developers were involved
when this repository was created)

This repository allows changing the log message of revisions that apply to projects you are
privileged to commit to. (I'm guessing it uses some custom scripting for this... not sure)

Before that we used a similar 'allow edit svn:log' policy for committers on the now disabled server. I think propedits to other properties are denied.

All repository changes go through a commit mailer script, which sends out mails to the mailinglists
of projects touched. For ^/subversion in the ASF repository that would be commits@subversion.a.o.
