While I'm at it.....
Is there any way to complete "Delete" something from a repository? There's times, particular during this learning curve phase I'm in now, when I really want to remove all traces that a particular thing was ever in a given repository... is this possible?
Delete the repository and recreate it... no other way.
Sorry, I answered a bit too quickly yesterday evening. I did not see that you wanted to remove only a part of your repository. So the good answer is:
- svn dump
- create a new repository (you can move the old one and create the new one with the same name)
- svn load
Yes that's not really practical and that forces the users to stop commiting during the operation...
