Re: [Subclipse-users] Different author and username with svn+ssh

Dear Aaron,

So far I could say that there is no support for that in JavaSVN now. I
will try to add it tomorrow and send you a jar file for testing.

However, to complete this feature, additional field should be added into
Subclipse authentication prompt dialog, this could take a some more time.
Meanwhile there will be a system property for to set author name for
commits.

PS. There is no parameter for author in commit method of JavaSVN API.
Currently the problem is that svnserve program is started without
--tunnel-user option and user name is not passed in response to "EXTERNAL"
authentication method request - so svnserve always uses uid as user name.
