Here's a review of your log message.

"return" -> "should return"

"(svn_dirent2_t): New struct."

By including the word "Added", you implied that the change you made to
svn_dirent2_t was adding a new struct (perhaps inside it).

Omit "struct"; just give its name.

How and why was it rearranged? Actually, I think maybe you mean it was moved
(whereas "rearranged" implies that parts of it were moved).

"Modified" isn't helpful. Obviously you modified it; that's why it is
mentioned in this log message. Instead, say briefly why and how you modified
it, and why you rearranged it. For example, "Simplified by using the new
helper function 'foo', and rearranged so that the most important results are
output first." (That is a completely made-up example.)

You can just say "Print lock information."

Just say "Output lock information."

What new function? You haven't mentioned a new function. And why - for what
purpose or effect?

"Mention locking information in the help text for 'svn ls'." would be better.

"Updated DTD file." would be better.

Again, a better explanation is needed.

And here.
