RE: Renew SVN repository

That's what I did, but I still have data (read space used) on my repository.
My backups are everyday bigger, and I don't find any way to reduce it.
Any other idea? No tools indeed?

P.S. There is no option of svnadmin called reload on SVN 1.5.6.
Do you mean "svnadmin load"?

Just delete the dead branches with "svn delete". The history will still be there, but developers won't be able to access those branches (unless they use pegged revisions).

Otherwise, you'll have to use svnadmin dump, filter, then "svnadmin reload". And, that's not fun.

Hi all,

I'm working on a very efficient 1.5.6 SVN repository.

Now this repository is very big, with a lot of branches in end of life and some other still alive.

I would like to renew it maintaining one month history, maintaining branches still alive but ignoring dead branches.

There is any tool or best practice to do it?
