Ok, but then I have a problem. This is the case: I have a repository on
a server which I'm sharing with several users, for example, a PHP website.

What I'm trying to do is that is one of the webmaster goes to the server
and modifies any file, he should be able to commit the changes to the
SVN server but using his username.

I have the options "store-passwords = no" and "store-auth-creds = no" so
it asks for password everytime but I cannot change the user. Any idea
how to do it? Thanks a lot.
