RE: change users in repository

You should be able to write a simple script to modify the svn:author
revision property for all 'incorrect' revisions. If your repository is
large, this might be quicker than a dump/load.

        Suggestions still welcome, but it looks like I can do this with
svn dump and sed.

                Our svn 1.5 repo is filled with commits by usernames
with @DOMAIN.COM appended on the end -- this is because the apache
configuration we were using assigned these username suffixes. We are
switching to a different authentication method that will not have
@DOMAIN.COM on the end of the usernames, so I'd like to retroactively
remove this suffix from the historical commits so we won't have multiple
usernames for the same person, IE change all 'joe_at_DOMAIN.COM' usernames
on historical commits to 'joe'.

                Is this possible?
                Thanks, Brian
