svndumpfilter exclude — Filter out nodes with given prefixes from the dump stream.


svndumpfilter exclude PATH_PREFIX...


This can be used to exclude nodes that begin with one or more PATH_PREFIXes from a filtered dump file.


--targets ARG


If we have a dump file from a repository with a number of different picnic-related directories in it, but we want to keep everything except the sandwiches part of the repository, we'll exclude only that path:

$ svndumpfilter exclude sandwiches < dumpfile > filtered-dumpfile
