Agreed, and it sounds like something that can be done using
scripts rather than a gui, but before even doing that I would
first look at the process(es) causing the need to dump/filter/load
rather than looking for tools to automate fixing it.

What about trying to prevent the problem from happening in the
first place? Whether it be user-based through training/education,
or repo-based through a pre-commit hook checking the files being
added into the repository.

If your problems revolve around people inadvertently adding
inappropriate files, TortoiseSVN will no doubt implement the
SVN obliterate command if/when it's available, although I
wouldn't hold your breath:


Not to be completely negative, if you're looking for a cross-
platform starting point, I've got a (nant) script which performs
an SVN repository migration (verify->dump->create->load->verify)
which could be modified to execute svndumpfilter between the
dump and load.


Tested (and used) on Win2003(SP1), WinXP(SP2) and SuSE 9.3, but
you will need Mono and a recent NAnt nightly for Linux.
