Yes. I tried.

'try' is an imperative (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imperative_mood).

Maybe because of
http://subversion.tigris.org/hacking.html#error-messages ("Don't end
the error message with a period (".").").

Or maybe semicolon.

Here it's used as a noun.

Yes.

'setting' is probably correct. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerund)
That sentence means ~ "See 'svn help propset' for more on how to set
properties.\n".

It probably means "Subversion 1.5 and greater versions support ..."

'callback' is correct.

Or "%s is mutually exclusive with %s" :)
