And the way to get Subversion to store the author is to make sure that
Apache forces you to authenticate when you commit stuff (assuming
you're using ra_dav.) If you're using ra_svn over SSH (i.e.
svn+ssh://blah/) then the usernames should be in there. If you're using
plain svn://blah/ then the author will not be set, because there's no

I could probably have said the above more clearly. Sorry if it's not
as understandable as it could be.

It would probably help if you provided more information, though. e.g.
what version of Subversion client are you using? What version of the
server? What access method (ra_dav, ra_svn, ra_local)? If it's ra_dav,
are you using SSL? And what does your httpd.conf look like? If you're
using ra_svn, are you tunnelling it over SSH? Are you sure it's going
over SSH (i.e. did you notice that it's now svn+ssh://blah instead of
svn://blah with some stuff in .subversion/servers?) etc.
