FWIW, it seems to be possible to destroy earlier revisions by deleting later revisions. Not sure how that happens, but something like this should "work": 1- add a binary file with the -kB option 2- commit 4 revisions (gets to 1.4) -- probably not all 4 necessary 3- change the option to -kb (update, commit -f) 4- commit one more revision (now at 1.6) 5- remove the revisions 1.5 and 1.6 (in that sequence -- not sure this is relevant, but probably it is) 6- 1.4 and earlier are now different from what they were in step 2. Other than a backup, there seems to be no way to get them back in their original form. Is surprising. I didn't expect a removal of a later revision to have an effect on earlier revisions. Gerhard
