RE: Removing empty revisions

Any help on this one please?

I saw some place on the net that a possibility is to write your one program to massage the dump file removing the revisions yourself (and I suppose renumbering at the same time), but this seems a bit hacky to me, surely there would be another way to do this?

Subject: Removing empty revisions

I have got a dump file that contains about 1000 empty revisions ( with log message "This is an empty revision for padding").

I understand that this comes from dumping a repository and filtering it with dumpfilter. I have not got access to the old repository, but I would like to remove these empty revisions before loading the dump into the repository. I have tried to filter it through svndumpfilter with --drop-empty-revs, but this seems only to work if the dumpfilter is creating empty revisions, and not affecting already empty revisions. Anybody has an idea of how to get rid of these?
