Hi Andy,

So can you tell how do I recover a file once it is deleted?

Out of the box, no. A delete is the same as a write, so if the user
still needs write permission, they can delete.

A pre-commit hook script like svnperms.py allows more fine-grained
control of things like this.

But remember, even if someone does delete a file, it's not really gone.
It can be recovered from the repository - it's just no longer visible at
the HEAD revision.
