Re: Changing text in an svn repository

Thanks for pointing me towards the svndump tool. It seems to do what
I want it to, since it'll recalculate the md5 hashes for all the
files using the sanitize tool. However, when I sanitize the file, it
replaces the contents of all the files with an md5 hash -- destroying
the contents of the repository. Anyone have any idea on why this
would happen? It seems to me that that isn't "sanitizing" very much.
