I did not test it because I thought it is an obvious change. I was
confident that the change was correct. I was sure that it should be
svn_dirent_join() since I was making the change to function
svn_ra_local__obliterate_path_rev under subversion/libsvn_ra_local.

But after reading your mail, I felt my assumptions might have been
wrong. So I went and checked further. It looks like this function is not
implemented for ra_neon, ra_serf and ra_svn. There are two test cases
for obliterate command in test/cmdline and they are all marked as
SKIP. Later I realised that obliterate command is not yet part of svn
command line or am I missing something?

Thanks and Regards
