Pruning out old revisions?

I'm working on a project where we have several very large and very
active Subversion repositories.

Disk space is becoming an issue, and we're trying to find a way to
remove old revisions while still keeping more recent ones available.

Is there a way to do this without dumping and rebuilding the
repository? (Ideally, without changing the revision numbers.)

Everything we've found so far indicates that we'll need the dump/rebuild
cycle, but I thought I'd ask here whether there's something we've missed.

Generating a list of revisions to keep (all revisions less than M days
old or one of the most recent N revisions) or to remove shouldn't be an
issue, I'm sure, but it's the actual cleaning up that seems to be difficult.

We're using Subversion 1.4.6, and there are few if any branches in the

Thanks for any advice,
Gary Ansok
