Re: Resizing an existing repository while keeping the revision numbering

I totally understand "Subversion is to retain all your history".

To elaborate, say, I have 100 revisions. I find tat i don't need revisions
0:90. So from tomorrow onwards I want to keep revisions 91 to 100. I could
do that by dumping 91:100 and load into a new repository. Doing so, reset my
revision number to 1. Basically, I do not want to upset the revision number
in my local workspace which is clocked at revision 100. I don't know if this
is a good idea to retain the revision.
