I'll SVN reverse merge (revert)...your mom

Posted on

Oh, so that’sHow to revert (roll back) to a previous revision with Subversion. It’s so obvious that one would want to do a reverse merge rather than just reverting. :-P

I’m archiving the steps here for reference, plus I wanted to add a couple of fixes to the syntax for Subversion 1.6.11. Make sure to check out the post for further information.
svn merge —dry-run -r 73:68 file.js

svn merge -r 73:68 file.js  

svn commit -m "Reverted to revision 68."
