Editing subversion log message does not update 'Repository' view
If you make a commit to subversion then update your Redmine 'Repository' view (either by clicking it with autofetch enabled, or running something like
/usr/bin/ruby /home/redmine072/script/runner "Repository.fetch_changesets" -e production
And then subsequently edit the log message for the commit using something like tortoisesvn's edit log message functionality, the updated log message is not detected by Redmine, even after re-running the "Repository.fetch_changesets" script.

fetch_changsets fetches new changesets. On projects with tens of thousands of revisions, this sounds rather natural not to parse them all because some bits in the log messages may have changed. If you want to reparse it all, kill it then add it again.
It has been discussed in a previous issue to have a "re-evaluate" facility for automating this process, but I don't know if it eventually lead to an implementation or not.

That makes sense (we have 30,000+ revisions, and it certainly takes a while to import them)!
However, couldn't the problem be solved with an appropriate post-revprop-change hook (could detect if svn:log has changed)? All that Redmine needs to do is be able to re-parse a single commit which could be specified on the command line.
A feature to "background" scan the repository and update any changed commits would also be great.
