You can:
svn propset svn:author --revprop -r <your_revision_number> <new_user_name> <repos_url>

<your_revision_number>, <new_user_name> and <repos_url>
must be set to appropriate values.

To make this command work (to make setting revision
properties work) you have to create a
pre-revprop-change hook.

Please refer to the Subversion Book (Chapter 5 /
Repository Maintenance / Repository Cleanup) for further
information and some warnings (if you generally enable
setting revprops by svn every user can change every
log message e. g.).
