When I run:

 find . -type f -exec sed -i 's/\$revision_history[^\$]*/$Log/g' {} \;

I get the next error message:

sed: invalid option -- i

This it seems to work well, the output of the SED shows the 
change, but when I observe the files I do not see the change 
of the keywords. am I making something bad?
You're missing the -i parameter to sed. Without it, it will just send the
output of sed to stdout.

If your sed does not support -i, then you'll have to redirect the output to
a file, and rename the file to the original.
