Get old SVN user to match new Jira username?

We are importing an old SVN into Jira. How do we get the old user to match the new user in Jira so it shows that as the user from all of our old commits, etc.

You will need to modify your existing dump before you import it into OnDemand. Instructions on doing this for a given revision can be found here.

Most likely you will need to write a script that loops over the revisions in your repository and edits the author name of each commit based on a conversion map.

The author needs to be changed to the username of the user in OnDemand.

This worked. We had some problems with the actual import but support handled it for us. Thanks.
