I can't believe that the Subversion plug-in set an arbitrary limit to the number of commit comments that can be added to JIRA. At the very least this should be a configuration setting, that is set a limit but give the user the means to change it.

It's unlimited, altought, too many comments on an issue can impact performance while loading that issue and even posting a new comment on it.

The limitation appears to be on Subversion commit comments. Only the 100 most recent comments are posted to JIRA.

Yes, that's correct, it is limited to 100 in the svn stuff.

As Luciano says, issue comments are limited only by the large numbers that computers can handle, far more than you'll ever use. But you will start to see it struggle to render pages when you have more than 500 comments on a single issue...

As I said above, the Subversion commit comments seem to have a 100 limitation. I can go directly to Subversion and see 24 earlier comments, however in JIRA, only the latest 100 comments are there.

Is there any way to remove or change the Subversion limitation anmd why is it there?

I thnk that's a case of downloading the source, changing it to suit and rebuilding the plugin. I don't know why it's been limited.

There are no limits to the number of comments added to a JIRA ticket.  I have a JIRA ticket with 75K+ comments generated by a user's automation script.   We had to delete the ticket and build custom alerts to flags these situations.  These tickets will crash your entire JIRA node.
