The text of that button is provided by Windows itself.
While it's possible to change it, I wouldn't recommend it.

Looks like these have been fixed in r21825, and changes are working well
with the latest build. Thanks!

Also the Log Message Dialog doesn't have an ALT+O shortcut for the OK
button.

With further testing I've found that the `Check For Modifications` dialog
doesn't have an accelerator for the OK button. Is it possible to add one for
that dialog?

Thanks. I've done quite a bit of testing over the weekend and today and I'm
seeing the accelerators in all the places that I was missing them
previously.

Added accelerators in r21789.

Why do some dialog button have ALT shortcuts and other don't?

Message Hi, I was looking at the source code and trying to determine why dialogs have
an ALT+KEY keyboard for some buttons, but not for other buttons. For
example, the `Checkout progress` dialog [1] uses ALT+O for the OK button.
The `Check for modifications`dialog uses ALT+R for the Refresh button and
ALT+H the Check repository button, but doesn't have a shortcut for OK [2].
Would it be possible to add a shortcut? I know I can use ALT+F4 to dismiss
the dialog, but it would be great if every dialog enabled ALT+O for the OK
button.
