I think you need --incremental on that second svnadmin dump. See
"svnadmin help dump".

you need the incremental option on the second dump

2009/3/27 Aaron Searle <searle.aaron_at_gmail.com>

Just found out that one of my revisions ( 2120 ) needs to be removed.

Plan was to 'svnadmin dump -r 0:2119 >> some.dump' then 'svnadmin dump
-r 2121:2400 >> some.dump'

then use 'svnadmin load repoNameHere < some.dump'

Problem is that is give me an error when load reaches revision 2121:

svnadmin: File already exists: ...... , path 'branches/somebranchname'

The branch already exists because a previous revision created it,
perhaps 300 revision earlier.

Either way, it this the wrong approach? Is there a better / more
efficient way to remove this revision?
