Re: Can svndumpfilter exclude specified file versions?

You can use svnadmin dump to specify the revisions you want to dump.
Let's say you want to skip revision "X". You can do two dumps. One
from revision 1 to X-1 and another from X+1 to the HEAD revision.

You should then be able to use these dumps via "svnadmin load" to
create a new repository without the bad revision number.

It's been a long while since I last did this. Sorry about the lack of details.
