Description locked 2009-04-06 08:14:59 UTC
I just ran into the situation that I wanted to restore a certain class file in a SVN repository.
The Problem: how do I find the revision in which the file was deleted?

I can search the repo (Versioning > Search History > ) and restrict to certain EXISTING packages or classes, but in an
active project there are a lot of commits.. Or even worse, if I only know the classname.-- The only way I found was
using the console and do a "svn log --verbose" and search for the file name and get last revision.

Requested Solution:
I'd wish some (advanced?) search properties where I could restrict the search to certain file/folder names and actions
(added, modified, deleted). Or simply, if the "Message" field (in the search UI) would also scan the filepath for the
search string.
