You would have to take the repository offline, "svnadmin dump" it to
a text file, "svndumpfilter exclude" to exclude the part you don't
want to keep, "svnadmin load" it into a new repository, bring the
server back up, and then have everybody check out new working copies
(if they had working copies of a revision greater than or equal to
the one you wanted to filter)
