Subversion does not inform the pre-commit hook about the name of the
committer. If you want it, obtain it using

svnlook author -t %2 %1

According to the svnperms.py usage message

Usage: svnperms.py OPTIONS

     -r PATH Use repository at PATH to check transactions
     -t TXN Query transaction TXN for commit information
     -f PATH Use PATH as configuration file (default is repository
                path + /conf/svnperms.conf)
     -s NAME Use section NAME as permission section (default is
                repository name, extracted from repository path)
     -R REV Query revision REV for commit information (for tests)
     -A AUTHOR Check commit as if AUTHOR had commited it (for tests)
     -h Show this message

the -A switch is for testing purposes and is not something you're
likely to actually need to use.
