Is the server still set up to require authentication for commits?
Subversion gets its author name from the web server (assuming you are
going through HTTP), which is usually set up to do some sort of basic
authentication. If the web server is not set up to _require_ the
authentication, then it will allow anonymous commits.

Check out
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.5/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html#svn.serve
rconfig.httpd.authn for further details.

Even the svn-serve method of managing a repository can allow anonymous
commits. I'd check the server configuration to make sure it *requires*
authentication.
