If authz denies access to some, but not all, of the paths modified in a
revision then log shows svn:author and svn:date but does not show
svn:log.  That is not what is shown above.

If authz denied access to all of the paths modified in a revision then
log does not show any of svn:author, svn:date or svn:log.  That could be
what is shown above.  Given read access to the root and no access to a
subdir then revisions that only modify paths in the subdir produce that
output.

The other possibility is that svn:date and svn:author have been deleted
from the revisions.
