SVN: Revert to a previous revision after a wrong update

Let’s say for example you accidentally ran “svn update” and your working copy got the updates that it shouldn’t have — unfinished patches, etc.

What you should do is check the logs using:

svn log | more

Look for the revision number then:

svn up -r 1234

*where 1234 is the previous revision number you want to go back to.

Another reason why you should properly put comments when commiting to your repository.
