So, let me see if I understand you correctly: you published your
contact information on an open mailing list, and are now upset when
the open nature of said mailing list causes your information to be
spread? As a result, you want that information redacted.

I am not familiar enough with the tigris.org system to know whether
individual message removal is possible, but that is not the only place
which archives this list. Even if we could remove the message at tigris.org
, it would still be available here: http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.user
  or here: http://svn.haxx.se/users/ or any number of other places.
Such is the nature of an open mailing list.

Given that, my best recommendation would be to install appropriate
filtering software on your email client and phone system, or change
your contact information altogether. In today's world, it's not a
question of if information we become public, but when.
