Re: how is svn:author set?

svn:author is set automatically on commits, but only if Subversion is
knows the author. This can happen if you're not using http login
credentials or you allow anonymous write access. For example, when you
do a checkout, does Subversion ask for your user name and password? If
not, Subversion won't be able to set svn:author on commits -- just
svn:log and svn:date.

Take a look at <http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html>
for setting up login credentials on your Apache server.
