RE: subversion load fails with “no such revision”

There are at least four different versions of dumpfilter floating about the aether. It would help to know which one you used, and how you used it.

I still haven't been able to make any progress on this. If ServerFault and this mailing list aren't going to be adequate to solve the problem, could someone suggest an alternative? Thanks,

I'm trying to learn how to migrate a Subversion repo, and am running into an issue that doesn't make sense to me. I've used `svndumpfilter` to split out a sub-project, and have removed some path prefixes. Several hundred commits now import correctly, but then I'm getting the following error:

    <<< Started new transaction, based on original revision 19190
         * editing path : branches/features/DynamicSource ... done.
         * editing path : branches/features/DynamicSource/src/build.properties ... done.
         * editing path : branches/features/DynamicSource/src/client/default.htm ...done.

    svnadmin: E160006: No such revision 19098
         * adding path : branches/features/DynamicSource/src/client/js/Enums.js ...

OK, so I go into the dump file to look at revisions 19190 and 19098. First of all, revision 19098 _does_ exist in the dump file and was imported without a problem. Revision 19190 is a merge. Within 19190, here's that last file's info, which seems to be causing the issue:

    Node-copyfrom-rev: 19100
    Node-copyfrom-path: trunk/src/client/js/Enums.js
    Text-copy-source-md5: 2db7f8d9c0ba4750d88ce0722731aad6
    Node-path: branches/features/DynamicSource/src/client/js/Enums.js
    Node-action: add
    Text-copy-source-sha1: 8f930509f8dbc17c5e82cd40aa5a76454d3d812c
    Node-kind: file
    Content-length: 0

Confusingly, revision 19100 does NOT exist in this filtered file. But the error's not referring to 19100, it's referring to 19098!

What do I do to get this file to load?
