svnadmin - Subversion repository administration tool
svnadmin command repos-path [args]
svnadmin is a tool to perform administrative operations on a Subversion repository. A Subversion repository contains the revision history of a directory tree. The revision history includes file changes and log messages as well as move and copy operations that were applied at some time in the past to the tree. svnadmin operations are typically carried out by an administrator. The svn(1) tool handles operations for normal users of the source controlled resource.
create repos-path Create a new, empty repository at repos-path. For example, a repository can be created with the command: $ svnadmin create /var/svn Importing a source tree into the repository created above is possible with the svn(1) command : $ svn import file:///var/svn . new_proj createtxn repos-path -rbase_rev Create a new transaction based on base_rev. dump repos-path [ -rlower-rev[:upper-rev] ] [--incremental] Dump the contents of filesystem to stdout in a 'dumpfile' portable format, sending feedback to stderr. Dump revisions lower-rev through upper-rev. If no revisions are given, all revision trees are dumped. If just lower-rev is given, that one revision tree is dumped. A 'dumpfile' is used to convert between incompatible repository formats. If --incremental is passed, then the first revi- sion dumped will be a diff against the previous revision, instead of the usual fulltext. load repos-path Read a 'dumpfile'-formatted stream from stdin, committing new revisions into the repository's filesystem. Send progress feedback to stdout. lscr repos-path path [ --copies ] Print, one-per-line and youngest-to-eldest, the revisions in which path was modified. Use the --copies flag to allow this operation to cross copy history while searching for revisions. (For directories, this is, for now, almost guaranteed to be uninteresting. Also, path must exist in the HEAD of the repository.) lstxns repos_path Print all txn names. recover repos_path Run the Berkeley DB recovery procedure on a repository. WARNING: only run this when you are SURE you're the only process accessing the repository. Requires exclusive access. rmtxns repos-path txn-name [ ... ] Delete the transaction(s) named txn-name. setlog repos-path -rrev file Set the log-message on revision rev to the contents of file. Be careful with this option. Log messages are stored as revision properties. The history of revision properties is not saved. This command will permanently overwrite the previous log message.
