'svn up -rX' only temporarily backdates your working copy. If you try
to commit after doing that, nothing will happen. 'svn commit' only
commits edited files, and 'svn up -rX' does create any edits. The
files will be *old*, but they won't be considered edited.

What you want to do is apply a patch to the working copy so that the
result "looks" like the old revision. After applying the patch, the
working copy will have many edited files, and then 'svn commit' will

Read about using 'svn merge' to remove changes in chapter 4. There's a
