When you use svndumpfilter to move one branch of a repository (say the
part of the svn.collab.net repos that held rapidsvn or gsvn), you can
either insert empty revisions for commits that occured in other parts of
the repository (so that the revision numbers in the new repository are
the same as those in the old one, so if people mentioned specific
revisions in bug reports, or emails, or whatever they don't become
invalid), or you can rip out empty revisions and allow the revision
numbers to change if you are bothered by the idea of a lot of empty
revisions.
