RE: Is anyone working on "svn obliterate"?

Very mature Toby.

Although when I said "out of curiosity" I really meant it. As I would not associate "obliterate" with a legitimate purpose, I felt compeled to ask for specifics to its purpose.

As others have made perfectly clear, the OP was serious about a trans-revision removal of history from the repository. I am thankful for the clarification.

[Add insults against Toby about "trolling" here -- whatever trolling means.]

I believe he is continuing his trolling along the ridiculous "FSFS bug"
line and not making a serious statement about the "svn delete" command,
thus Max's statement about feeding the trolls.
