Hi James!

You are right, this seems a bit stupid. However, I tried on a test
repo and it seems like it is just printing it that way. No matter how
I used it, it did exclude the wanted path in both cases.

But I use v1.3.1. Maybe something changed?

svndumpfilter will actually display in the end what it dropped. Does
it tell you that it did drop anything?

By the way, this:

Revision 2987 committed as 2987.
Revision 2988 committed as 2988.

doesn't mean that svndumpfilter did not drop anything! It only clears
out the node, but still leaves the revision in, so this is
the normal default case! If you really want to wipe out and renumber
the dropped revisions, use the appropriate switches, e.g.:

svndumpfilter --drop-empty-revs --renumber-revs exclude /projectA/subcon/component3 < original > without3

Cheers, Ingo =;->
