Subject Re: Problem with svndumpfilter

Thanks, Stefan.  The path of least resistance for me is to use the script you pointed me to.
 However, it seems that the exclude feature is not yet implemented:

    if args[0] == 'include':
      sys.exit(analyze_logs(map(sanitize_path, targets)))
    elif args[0] == 'exclude':
      usage_and_exit("Feature not implemented")
      usage_and_exit("Valid subcommands are 'include' and 'exclude'")

Is there a more recent version of this script?

 It always fails after the exact same revision.
