Re: Permanently delete files?

I believe Chapter 5 of the book discusses dumping and loading
individual revisions of a repository.

In order for the repository to permanently lose data within past
revisions, it has to never be entered to begin with. You can use the
dump and load commands to take specific revisions from an old
repository and create a new repository just out of the revisions you
want.

The developers are planning on possibly adding an 'obliterate'
function to SVN, but it might be a while, unless someone else decides
to donate their time to the project.

~Good Luck
