Can this application edit a commitment history log after the completion of a commitment?

Since the text of the commitment was mistaken, I would like to correct.

In Git, hit the 'Commit' button and check the box at the bottom labelled 'Amend previous commit'

In Mercurial, select the previous commit in the log, right-click and select 'Strip from here', and make sure you select the 'Do not change the working copy' box. Then commit the changes again, this time with the commit message you prefer (this assumes you don't have other changes in your working copy too, if you do you probably want to Shelve them before you perform the strip command).

In both cases, make sure you have not pushed your changes to anyone else before you do this. Rewriting history should never be done on commits which are public in an upstream remote or similar.
