RE: Clear the attic

I've tried that one, and it works. By using it, I can remove a part of
the directory tree completely. And the best part is that a the dumpfile
act as a full repos backup before you do anything wrong.
What I really would like to know, is there a way to remove old history
of a file (or directory). Say I have a file that has been committed 20
times with changes and I want to remove the first 10 commits. After this
operation it should look like the 11th commit was the first one, and the
9 following commits should be the same as before.

        You'll have to dump and reload the repository, removing any
files/revisions you don't need from the dump file created in the
process. The svndumpfilter tool provided with subversion might be what
you need.
