Almost. If you have Apache and your repository configured to require
that users authenticate in order to commit to the repository, then the
username provided to Apache when it prompts the user *is* passed to
SVN and logged by for the activity.

So, if you're not seeing this behavior (you're getting "anonymous"
commits), something is amiss in your configuration.
