That's a good suggestion, but I think there is a complication. I have
other project directories in the subversion repository and I don't want to
modify them at all. They have files that don't exist in the HEAD revision
that are still important to me.

Under the $SVN/Linux directory I only want to retain revisions that exist
in the HEAD revision. I would like other project directories to remain

Thanks for your suggestion.

Maybe this is a solution. I could export the Linux directory. Dump
everything to a file, filter out the Linux directory completely, create a
new repository, and import the Linux directory.

Would this do what I'm looking want?

It sounds right.
