If you accidently add some stuff, it can be quite painful to remove. How does one remove unused log files?

$ svnadmin list-unused-dblogs | xargs rm Subversion using Berkely DB which sucks, as it can’t be used on a NFS. It also requires WRITE permissions just to read it! Trying to get ssh access and viewcvs working ? READ:

hendry@bilbo:~$ sudo chown -R :svn public; chmod -R g+rwx public; chmod g+s public/db/

hendry@bilbo:~$ egrep svn /etc/group


Watch it!

watch tree -pg repo/
