RE: svn dump & load continued

Thank you. The entire repo is huge and I did do a complete dump earlier
piping into svndumpfilter which caused another nightmare. Here's a question
for you: Can I use both options of 'exclude' and 'include' of svndumpfilter
simultaneously? I tried both options in the same command and the result
wasn't pretty. The instruction in the manual is sorta ambiguous as to
whether I can only use each option one at a time or at the same time. Do
you happen to know?

Hello Res,

Here's a guess. It looks like part of your repository at R42710 (maybe in
one of the projects you don't care about) has a file that was last changed
at R42708. Since you're not backing up R42708, that file isn't going to be
retrievable: you'll have the delta at R42710, but you won't have the base
file you need.

I don't know whether you'll be able to retrieve the project you need,
because you can't know from this which specific files are affected.

Maybe if you take a complete dump and then use svndumpfilter you can do what
you want. In any case then, you'd at least have a complete dump to recover
from if your work goes bad for some reason.
