Is it possible that Tortoise SVN maintains the history of the 'Message' against each Revision?

Currently, we have added 'comments' against each 'Revision' and sometimes also apply 'Edit log message' to add or modify the mentioned messages but unable to see the history of the previous comments.

So, is there any possibility to see history of the log messages against the same Revision? Thanks!

You would need to write a hook (see the pre-revprop-change.tmpl) to store the changes somewhere since revison properties are UNVERSIONED.

My thought would be to write the property to a temporary file (this would be based on the transaction number)and allow the update, then on the post-revprop-change pre-append this to the property and commit, this would require a dedicated user (this would need to be checked in the pre-revprop-change) that then didn't create a temporary file.

I've been thinking about this myself but haven't written it yet!
