Subject Restoring a Bad Dump
Date Tue, 12 Jul 2016 02:06:01 GMT
Hello all,

It's a long story, but I have a large (13 gig) subversion dump file that
was taken at the wrong "level".  That is, there were several different
repositories on the server like this:


The dump file was generated from the "/repositories" level like so:

svnadmin dump /repositories > /backup/subversion.dump

Obviously, svnadmin is pretty unhappy with this dump file.  I have tried a
couple of dump-reading utilities -- "svn-dump2dir" and "svndumptool" -- and
I might be able to eventually get one to work, but I thought I'd ask this
group, have any of you ran into this situation before?  Is it possible to
restore this dump?  I don't really care about the history, the most recent
version of the files would be great.
