The whole idea of the repository is to have a full record of
everything that ever happened. Revisions are stored in a binary diff
format; I don't believe it's possible to edit them manually (You can
take a look at revs/REVNUM and try it, but BACK UP FIRST). Your best
bet is probably to do the dump/edit/reload dance described in the FAQ
(http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html) in response to the "how can I
delete a revision?" question.

The site seems to be down at the moment for me, or at least requiring
a login to access the FAQ.
