Abbreviations in subversion messages

Hi!

I am translating now subversion messages and I would like to show
my view about the following messsage (and similar):

#: libsvn_fs_base/reps-strings.c:758
#, c-format
msgid "Rep contents are too large: got %s, limit is %s"

I think that using abbreviations in messages may cause misunderstaning
or confusing not only translator but user of svn. In the following
message "Rep" means Representation and of course "Rep" is also
abbreviation of Repositorium word. Am I right?!

Greets,
Karol
