The "M" in status for the working directory means that the you've
changed the properties of that directory. It's failing to commit
because your working copy's version of the directory is out of date
relative to the one in the repository and you can't commit a change to
an out of date directory.

There is some info in the FAQ about this:
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#wc-out-of-date and it points to
a section in the book talking about it.

It's likely that you're out of date because of previous commits you've
made, it's nothing to be worried about, and a simple svn update will
allow you to commit your change.
