Re: Overwrite a file without history

I hope not.

This sounds like an example of using the wrong tool for the job.
Subversions explicit intention is to capture all changes in a
retrievable manner. Providing a means to subvert this just opens a
door to the risk of lost content.

I guess what you really want is secure FTP to a central store
somewhere so you can push to file there for shared access rather than
into a Subversion repository. If the image is used by an automated
process (eg a build process) then perhaps the build script should be
pulling the most recent file from FTP.
