Yes, so that you can enter a log message for the commit. If you
prefer an editor other than vi, set the EDITOR environment variable.
If you prefer to give your commit message at the command line, use
the "-m" option, e.g. "svn mkdir file:///path/to/dir -m 'making dir'"

Ok, then you entered no log messages for those commits.

That means the /def directory did not yet exist in the repository.
You can either "svn mkdir" it first, or, as the error message says,
use the "--parents" option to "svn mkdir" to create any intermediate
directories automatically.
