Note that tla get could be using a revlib instead of getting
changesets from the archive.  If this is the case for you, then "tla
get" won't necessarily give any indication of corruption, but the
archive could still be corrupt.

If you mean "the last revision is patch-N, and I need to edit the log
for patch-(N-x), while retaining patch(N-x+1) and onwards as they
are", then I don't see how that could be construed as anything other
than changing history -- which, as has been pointed out, you probably
don't want to do.

Note that the patchlog appears twice in the archive -- both as a
separate file (for easy access, e.g. "tla cat-archive-log") and as
part of the changeset tar file.

"tla logs" will look at the patchlogs in your working tree.  They have
been put in that tree by applying changeset tarfiles, and hence you
won't see any results of your changing the separate patchlog file in
the archive.

I think that e.g. "tla abrowse -Dsc" will look at the file you've
