RE: Restriction on deletion of files from Subversion

We all know that it is possible to get back a file from Subversion
although it may be deleted by the users.But for that we have to check
the History and then only we can track which file has been deleted.I was
just thinking if its possible to restrict the common users from deleting
the files from Subversion and only Admin can delete the files from it.It
will be less time consuming and effort saving.

I see that Hari answered you.

Can I ask a related question? What process need does disallowing the
deletion of files from a SVN repository serve? I'm always curious as to

how other folks are working with SVN and restricting deletes isn't
something I had needed yet.
