You are able to add one log message per commit, but this can be of any
size you want. Altering this log message afterwards must be configured
separately because per default log messages are immutable.

What's the size of your images? Subversion produces diffs for every
committed file and I don't think it's fun to generate diffs for files
with some GB in size. Your images will change practically on every use
of your guest OS, too.
