Re: Overwrite a file without history

This generates the same return question. Why do you want it in
Subversion if it's not a versioned resource (since that's what
Subversion does).

Store it in another location with similar accessibility but without
the imposition of revision retention.

Subversion doesn't offer any way, at all, not a bit, not even a
little, to have some files versioned and others not. Any commit
creates a new revision, that revision is retained (unless some dumping
and reloading is done with a little filtering in-between).

Can your build process or packaging process (or whatever depends on
the image) go and fetch the latest image from another form of storage?
