Newbie Question

I am a newbie coming from the world of CVS.

There are a lot of things tripping me up:

(1) I need to be able to do a svn update on a project that someone on my
team has already checkout. The problem: Their username is stored in

How did we handle this in CVS, well it was easy: cvs -d $CVSROOT update

How do we make this happen in SVN?

I tried svn update --username williams but it still prompted me for my
colleague's password. By the way I am using svn+ssh.

(2) I want to do simple email notification with the hooks feature. So,
I have made some progress but when my colleague makes a commit an email
comes to me with my name as if I were the one that made the commit.

CVS administration was much easier. :) Maybe because I was so used to
CVS. My mail scheme was setup so nice in CVS; I just want to migrate
the same scheme over but can't find a simple/painless way to do it.

I thank this mailing list in advance for any help.
