RE: [PATCH] svnadmin copy command(Scanned for viruses: Notes Admin)

I am very glad that you like the idea. I have replaced incorrect
refference to "backup" with "copy".

In order to ensure that copy command patch would not break any existing
functionality I am splitting my effort into two parts. First part is
submitting small patches to enhance subversion core library to provide
sufficient API for my copy command implementation. Second part is
updating my implementation to work with the enhances core API and
submitting a patch.

For starters I would like to submit a patch to libsvn_fs's
svn_fs_berkeley_archive() functionality.

First is to change the return type of a function from Berkeley DBs pointer
list to apr array (apr_array_header_t). Add a new parameter allowing to
receive only log file names without the absolute path and a parameter that
would include used log files in the list.

The patch also contains changes to svnadmin archive command to allow
specifying the new parameters from command line. Default behavior of the
svnadmin archive command is not changed. If no parameters are specified
it will list absolute paths to unused log files.

I like the concept a lot. So +1 in concept.

'archive' is a bit of a misnomer. 'delete' or 'discard' would be better.
