svn is allowing you to edit your commit message with your $EDITOR.

You can provide the message directly on the command line with the -m switch:

svn -m "a commit message to remember I did it" mkdir.....

 

See http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook-1.1/svn-book.html#svn-ch-3-sect-4.5

BTW, the doc really well-written.

Hi again,

 

I'm not just new to subversion, I'm also new to linux. I' trying to run svn
mkdir to create a tags directory. When I run "svn mkdir
file:///var/repository/proj1/tags" from a shell it opens up some crazy vim
program with some commit.tmp file open or something. What is going on?
Thanks.
