How to prune old versions of an artefact?

We are running a svn 1.7 server.

One of our repositories contains an artefact that is 4GB. It consists of a set of regression test results that we want to version control. This artefact changes infrequently - say every month or two - but it's enormous size is causing concern for IT Manager, as the svn database is slowly increasing in size.

I would like to prune very old versions of this artefact from the server's database. I realise that pruning is not generally a good idea for a version control system, but this is an exceptional case.

What is the current status of pruning in svn, i.e. how can I do it?

Best regards
