Re: Anti-FUD: SVN ate my repository

wedged repository, n:
A repository in need of repair using available recovery tools.
Processing cannot continue until the underlying database has been
rebuilt from the available database log files.

corrupted repository, n:
A repository with unexpected data within the database and a lack of
sufficient database log files to effect proper recovery. Proper
administration of Subversion database resources should prevent this
from ever happening. Please read the "How to Properly Maintain
Backups" reference guide for more information.
