RE: FSFS : Malformed representation header

Hello,

How is it possible to "replace the revision with an empty revision"?
Do you mean messing with files in db/revs?

I have a similar (?) problem that I posted to the list (and got no answer)
http://subversion.tigris.org/servlets/ReadMsg?list=users&msgNo=59475
The corruption is limited to one revision.
If I could just get rid of this revision, I would feel much better...

Thanks for your help

Samuel
