You cannot change history!
If the file had a certain contents when it was revision 1.5 and now it
has become 1.10, then 1.5 is old history and the whole purpose of a
version control system is to preserve the history of each file.
So you are not permitted to change the old revision into something
else, period.

If what you want to do is to work on a new revision of the file based
on the revision 1.5 then you can either base a new branch on 1.5, edit
the file and commit. Now you will have a new file with revision
Or you may decide that revisions 1.6-1.10 were bad and you want 1.5
back on top. Then simply get the 1.5 revision, copy it off to the
side, update to HEAD and copy in the 1.5 file and commit. This file
will now be revision 1.11.
