Let's assume that someone has the 72GB. If you look at Carol's email you'll she that she is
attempting to pull only part of that repos.

So the process would be to extract the proper part of the 72GB repos making the much smaller

Is there a particular svn dump command that will allow her to extract or replicate the necessary
parts of the Adobe svn tree to make a smaller more manageable repos or dump?
