If someone reads this log message in a year, I don't think it'd be clear
to them what the problem being fixed was. I think it would be useful to
be more specific about the circumstances; for example:

    entries-dump: Escape string-typed attribute values when serializing
    them as Python string literals.

    Before this commit, a filesystem node named «foo\bar» (a single,
    7-character path component) would cause «e.name = 'foo\bar'» to be
    emitted. The unescaped backslash would manifest as a test failure or
    a SyntaxError, depending on the following characters.

    This was triggered by svnadmin_tests 42 verify_metadata_only under
    Python 3 on Windows.

The reference to "svnadmin_tests 42 verify_metadata_only" is only
a placeholder, to be replaced by the correct reference.

I specifically used the term "filesystem node" to clarify that «foo\bar»
was to be taken as an svn_fspath__* path (where backslash has no
special meaning), as opposed to, say, an svn_dirent_* path (where
backslash is a delimiter on Windows).

For future reference, the "${Verb}ed by" phrases in log messages are
case-sensitive:

    tools/dev/contribulyze.py:521:field_re = re.compile(
    tools/dev/contribulyze.py:522: '^(Patch|Review(ed)?|Suggested|Found|Inspired|Tested|Reported) by:'
    tools/dev/contribulyze.py:523: '\s*\S.*$')
    ⋮
    tools/dev/contribulyze.py:566: m = field_re.match(line)
    ⋮
    tools/dev/contribulyze.py:604: m = field_re.match(line)

This doesn't matter in this case, of course, since the person being
credited is already a full committer; however, when crediting people who
aren't already full committers, the correct case form should be used so
the regexp matches and the contribulyzer pages are updated. (Unless we
change the script)

Cheers,

Daniel
