Commit log messages: Best practices?

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has any tips for best practices in composing
commit messages. Should we require that authors note their name with
commits, or is that a job for svnlook? How specific should you be about
file paths, adds, removes, etc? I thought about something like the

svn ci -m "[joeblow] Added project2/ to /svn/projects"
svn ci -m "[janeblow] Updated menu functionality in
svn ci -m "[johnblow] First version of template complete in

Any suggestions will be welcome. Thanks,
