RE: Changing versioned properties in older revisions,

I just ran a short experiment on a repository I just created. It seemed
to work. The actual repository is much more complex than the one I just
experimented on but at least I know it's possible.

Would doing a dump, modifying the dump via svndumpfilter, and re-loading
fix the problem?


"The great thing about the human-readability aspect of the dump format
is that, if you aren't careless about it, you can manually inspect and
