Hi,

I have a file in subversion that should not be there, for security reasons.
Can I somehow have its contents removed from the FSFS db? I don't mind if
this requires some sort of manual editing, even hex-editor level editing of
the repository. I just want the content removed (or overwritten with other
content) from the repository.

I tried editing the revision file that added the content
($REPOS/db/revs/$REV) in a hex editor to overwrite the content, but then got
a message about mismatching checksum (rightfully, I guess).

Is it possible to do what I want?

Thanks,
Noam.
