RE: svn lets you delete the trunk?

You saw the trunk, you saw the delete button, and you though ' why not '? :)

The trunk is just a folder, if you delete it in revision X, just undo it in
transaction X+1,
no problem at all. You can't lose data in subversion, that's the nice part
of it.
I don't think you can prevent this behaviour.

There is a chapter in the SVN book concerning the ressurection of deleted
items:

Subject: svn lets you delete the trunk?

hi,

i've setup a test repository with svn to test things out before actually
moving our entire codebase to svn.
My setup uses svn1.2 and apache 2.0 with https access.

Using the repository browser in svn i browsed to the repository and right
clicked on "trunk" and selected "delete".
To my astonishment, i was actually able to delete my trunk and now my trunk
is gone. I have my branches and tags.

So two questions:

1. how do i get my trunk (or any branch) back after its been deleted 2. how
do i prevent this from happening?

thanks!

amol
