this is a known problem with https access and certificates.
SVN doesn't see any author information. So it is rather off
topic, because it is SVN related (my apologies for this)

For our SVN repository, we use a workaround from Martin v. Loewis
to utilize the "CN" info included in the SSL-Certificate as author
information. It is a small apache module and can be compiled and
installed with APXS
(Infos on APXS: see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/dso.html )
