If your Subversion server allows password entry, then you should not
use it for anything you care about. The reference implementation of
Subversion has the clients store their passwords in clear text in
$HOME/.svn/auth/. Since this is clear never going to go away, it means
that the basic Subversion security model is broken.

If your servers do not insist on using SSL key access or svn+ssh
access instead, then the server is not secure enough to be trusted and
you should refuse to use it, simply as a security conscious user.

That said, password management is not built into Subversion itself.
It's always implemented as an add-on service, and you'd have to ask
your Subversion server maintainer how to change your password.
