Some days ago someone commits a revision in svn which has to be rolled back for
some reason. In Subversion it is not that easy like in git where you can call a
git revert ID, because subversion does not have a command
This command rolls back changes made in revision N, using a reverse merge:
svn merge -c -N .
Note the minus character in front of N. This is the same as the following command (which also works with older subversion clients):
svn merge -r N:N-1 .
Rolling back multiple changes (let’s say revisions LOW to HIGH, both inclusive) works the same way:
svn merge -r HIGH:LOW-1 .
Afterwards examine the changes made to the working copy and commit them.
