RE: RE: Reduce SVN repository size

Svnadmin dump dumps the whole repository(with all revisions, the whole
history).
With svndumpfilter you can filter the desired files. The so generated
dump file only includes the files you still want in the repository with
all the history.

So this should be the Solution you are looking for.

regards,
Peter
