Re: unversion a file

If you haven't commited the original "svn add file" or whatever svn
command you used to put the file under version control, then you can
run "svn revert file". This will leave the original unversioned file
around while "unversioning it.

I'm pretty sure that's not what you wanted, but at least you can script
the command sequence below with something like :

------------------------
#!/bin/bash

mv $1 $1.$$
svn rm $1
svn commit $1 -m "Unversioning $1"
mv $1.$$ $1

------------------------
