RE: How to delete a project???

Hi kj,

considering your answers on the other replies you got on this email,
I guess you want to delete a full folder from a repository, something
like this:

   /project2 <- try to delete this project.

If you want to get rid of say project2, you can offcourse do
'svn delete http://xyz/src/project2', but in that case project2 will
remain part of the history stored in the repository.

The best option you have then, is to dump the full repository to file,
remove all references to /src/project2 and then import the repository
again. Now before you think this is a manual job, there is a nice tool
for that in the bin folder of the subversion distribution, called

Svndumpfilter allows you to parse a dumped repository, and filter its
folders, based on exclude & include rules which you specify. It will
generate a new dump file, which you can then load in a new, empty
It has served me well a few times and I'm sure it will solve both your
problems as well.

The SVN book has even a nice example on how to use it, you can find the
relevant section online at:
