Undo commit in history

Dear Subversion crew,


I am new to Subversion so I was reading up on the 1.4 version. At the
bottom of the history section
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.tour.history.html in the information
box you state:


Many Subversion newcomers attempt to use the above svn update example to
"undo" committed changes, but this won't work as you can't commit changes
that you obtain from backdating a working copy if the changed files have
newer revisions. See the section called
chmerge.commonuses.resurrect> "Resurrecting Deleted Items" for a description
of how to "undo" a commit.


I would suggest telling the reader what is the appropriate command or
command sequence. So they go away with point "to undo a committed change
you . . ." in addition to the "Resurrecting Deleted Items" link.


Sincerely yours,

Marc Whitlow
