RE: Repository cleanup

The idea is to get rid of the no longer needed branches in the repository
itself and reducing the time of our backup operation that by itself dumps
the repository.

Using dump, filter and load looks fine but I'm still a little unsecure if
this might affect the continuity of my log history in any other folders of
the repository?

Thank you,

The only real way to delete old information in Subversion is to do a
"svnadmin dump", use svnfilter to remove the branches, create a new clean
repository and, do a "svnadmin load".

You can do a "svn delete" on the branch which will remove the branch from
the head of your repository tree and thus render it pretty invisible.
However, the data is still in the repository, and can still be restored to
the head.

We are using a pretty standard repository setup with a folder
branches/private that contains the (private and temporary) branches that
will later be merged into the main trunk.
Is there a save way to get rid of the no longer used (private) branches
without losing any of the history information in trunk?
Thank you,
