http://svnbook.red-bean.com
and
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch09.html

On Windows the docs should be at: Start -> All Applications ->
Subversion -> Subversion Documentation.

On Unix: `man svn`.

Well this is intentionally hard. I think to do this you'll have to
"dump" the repository using "svnadmin", delete the revisions you don't
want, and then "load" back in. Any other way will just create additional
revisions in the repository.
