The author is stored in the 'svn:author' property on the transaction.

(Properties like svn:author, svn:log, svn:date are called "revision
properties", but really they should be called "rev-or-txn properties".)

If someone changes that property to a new value, then that value is
what will show up as the author. You can even do this to old
revisions, shockingly enough, though you have to have a
pre-revprop-change hook activated to allow it.
