Selectively permanently remove files using SVNAdmin Dump filter

Dear all,


I would like to completely remove certain files from my repository.


I have recently made a change to the build process which commits dlls to
be deployed - I did this so that they would be safely backed up and
easily retrievable. However as the size of the repository is growing so
much we will stop doing this and remove those already added.


The files I would like to delete are in a path like this




Where X_X_X is the Major, Minor and Build version numbers of the
development cycle and X_X_X_X is the full version number and PROJECTNAME
is the name of the project built.


The rest of the Tag is a copy of the code, which I would like to keep -
I would just like to remove the Deploy folder.


From reading the docs it seems that I will need to use SVNAdmin
dumpfilter and then create a new repository from that dump. This should
preserve the revision numbers and history.


Has anyone done a filter using a pattern similar to this? It is even
possible to use a pattern like this for the filter?
Does a new repository need to be created from just one dump file or
could I create many dump files with different include patterns and have
those imported into the new repository?
Best regards and thanks in advance,
Ian Wood
