RE: Permanently delete a revision?

Thanks, but I'd rather not do a complete dump. Since I'm using FSFS, and if
I don't care about any of the revs after the bad commit, couldn't I just
delete that rev along with all subsequent revs?

For example:

rm /svn/db/revs/150 /svn/db/revs/151 ...
rm /svn/db/revprops/150 /svn/db/revprops/151 ...

Then I guess I would have to update the /svn/db/current file, which
currently looks like this:

> cat current
188 82 1

... and decrement the first number (last rev number).

I'm just guessing at all of this, but I don't want to corrupt my repository.
Thanks for your help everyone.

Luke

Hi,
 
It seems in my rush to get my whole life versioned, I imported some private
SSH keys into the repository that I really don't want there. Can anyone
tell me how to permanently delete a revision? I want to remove it from the
repository completely, so that nobody can revert to it and retrieve those
private keys. I'm using FSFS type repository.
 
Thanks,
