Well, there's

 * "svn obliterate" http://subversion.ti​gris.org/issues/show​_bug.cgi?id=516
   There's a python script that does this for bdb repos, from 2008 or so.
   "Additional comments from Karl Fogel Wed Apr 16 13:33:42 -0700 2008" ff.

 * http://robmayhew.com​/delete-parts-of-sub​version-history/
   This means that all revision numbers are off; you could either fix FSVS'
   data files (anchored text search/replace), or use "sync-repos".

 * same as above, but with a lot of empty revisions before the "real" history.
   Has the advantage that FSVS and all other (up-to-date) clients see no change
   at all.


Hope that helps!

Phil

Message Hi Phil,

 

I'd like to purge old versions from the svn repository that fsvs is
using.

 

What procedure would be minimally disruptive to the conf, waa, and
checkout areas ?

 

Thanks for any advice !
