Re: Stop versioning a file

If you have a server (if you are not among those people
who still use file: protocol) you have either svnserve
or mod_dav_svn there.

The svnadmin tool is along with those files.

Note, that if you download from CollabNet, it now has separate
"Client only" and "Client and server" packages. The first one
includes the command-line client only, not the server tools.
