The author of a revision is stored in the svn:author revision property,
so the same way as you read it with propget, you can change it with propset.

% svn ps "svn:author" "myname" --revprop -r6994 http://server/svn/PROJECT

In order to change existing revision properties you need to have the
pre-revprop-change hook script installed on the repository. Read this
section of the FAQ to learn how to do that (it's about changing the
svn:log property):
