I don't think it needs to be in the FAQ because it's already in the
book. See "Undoing Changes"


and "Resurrecting Deleted Items"


Users are expected to have read the book, and the FAQ, I suppose.

I suppose an "svn resurrect" or "svn undelete" could be convenient.
But it's just a special case of something that can already be done as
described above.
