RE: Rescuing a repository

It would get you a working repository on short term, I think.

This is a bit theoretical. I'm sure one of the svn developers will correct
me if I'm wrong...

If you svnadmin dump then it starts off with the first revision being dumped
completely (check the documentation on --incremental!). As such, revision
337 should contain those images!
It doesn't say it with that many words, but --incremental skips the complete
dump of the first revision instead dumping only the delta. That forces the
user to first load a previous dump as a starting point.

Of course, if dumping 337 needs 336 you're still toasted.

As to loading it... I wouldn't be surprised if you could just load both and
get a hole at 336.
Just try svnadmin load.
