That's most likely because you're committing over a file:// url, which
just records the current username of the committing user as the author
of the commit. If you're actually using a server (i.e. committing
over http(s):// or svn://) then it requires authorization to be turned
on before the server will even have a username to record. If
anonymous writes are configured it will just leave the author blank.
