If you want to delete the repository and make a new one, you can do

rm -rf /path/to/repos
svnadmin create /path/to/repos

Or, if there's other data in the repository you still want to keep,
you can just remove that one path from the repository -- note that
when you do this, the files are still there in the history of the
repository and can be easily recovered.

svn rm file:///path/to/repos/myproject/trunk -m "Removing myproject/
