I agree. It doesn't make sense to show last-commit revision twice, and
equally it doesn't make sense to show update revision next to
last-commit author, so dividing the information into 3 lines seems
better to me, although maybe it should be grouped with
Node/Text/Property status just below.

I also note that a lock creation date is shown even when there is no
lock on the file.
