Oh, I almost forgot: If you are committing other people's commits back to 
SVN, a typical workaround is to use the the --add-author-from parameter in 
git-svn <http://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/docs/git-svn.html> - 
this adds the original author as part of the commit message:


When committing to svn from git (as part of *commit-diff*, *set-tree* or *
dcommit* operations), if the existing log message doesn’t already have a 
From: or Signed-off-by: line, append a From: line based on the git commit’s 
author string. If you use this, then --use-log-author will retrieve a valid 
author string for all commits.
