We have many servers and for us the SVN server is a bit like a backup
server. So every webmaster can log into a computer and modify any file
(manually, vi like) and the commit the changes to the SVN server.

But for us is a requirement to know who modified what and when. Using
svn+ssh:// I cannot change the user with the argument --username but it
seems to work fine, though, with https

Using https:

    svn --username srua update
    Password for 'srua':

Same for svn+ssh://

    svn --username srua update

but here, it's always assuming that username is the username who
checkout the repository on the first time.
