        Subject: svn revert question
        I am new to SVN, one of my user has mistakenly updated my
testing server using svn update from the root directory. It has added,
updated and deleted a lot of files which are not supposed to be, Is
there any way I can revert back to the previous state? Its an emergency,
any help would be appreciated.
        'svn revert' has a very specific meaning; it undoes local
modifications and replaces them with pristine copies from the .svn
directories in your workspace. That isn't what you need in this
instance. What you need to do is simply 'svn update' back to the
revision number or point in time of your testing server before the
ill-advised 'svn update' to HEAD.

        Thanks and Regards
