Remove "that has not been deleted".
Add "where the file has been modified at least once on the branch".

Which has consequences for this paragraph:

Replace "active branches" with "branches on which there has been a
significant amount of activity at any point in the past".
Delete "and/or tagged versions" - a tag occupies insignificant space, as
does a branch on which no activity has occurred - this is because subversion
simply stores a reference to the branchpoint. A new fulltext springs into
existence whenever a branched file is first modified.
