And one more question.
I added a few files in revision 3, modified some. I deleted all those
files in revsion 4 which were added in revision 3. And modified some
more in revision 4 (which eventually became revesion 5 on commit).
Now if I do the process of eliminating revisions 3 and 4, will the
version 5(which will become version 3 after dump/load) look as if it
would have if it was ACTUAL revision 3 (i.e. all the modifications
arising from revisions 3 and 4 but without the extra baggage of files
added and deleted in 3 and 4?
thanks again.
