How do I set the author name on log messages ?

Hi,

When committing, Subversion uses my login as the author name in the log message.

How do I set the author name that appears in the log messages to
something more meaningful that my login name ? For instance, I believe
my name and e-mail address are more meaningful to someone reading the
logs than my login.

Can it be done in a configuration file so it is done automatically
when committing ?

On the other hand, what is the common practice in Subversion
environments ? Are names and e-mail addresses used instead of logins
in most projects ? Do people even think about that ?

Thanks,
Leonel
