Using svk to delete a file from your working copy merely schedules it to be deleted. When you commit, the file is deleted in the depot.
$ svk delete myfile D myfile $ svk commit --message "Deleted file 'myfile'." Committed revision 14.
Deleting a DEPOTPATH, however, is immediate, so you have to supply a log message:
$ svk delete --message "Deleting file 'yourfile'" //test/yourfile Committed revision 15.
Here's an example of how to delete a file that has local mods:
$ svk delete over-there over-there is modified, use 'svk revert' first. $ svk revert over-there Reverted over-there $ svk delete over-there D over-there
Here's an example of how to delete a file which was scheduled for addition but not yet committed:
$ svk delete new-file new-file is scheduled, use 'svk revert'. $ svk revert new-file Reverted new-file $ rm new-file
