There are quite a few SVN commands that I do not use so often but that I need every once in a while. One of them is related to reverting a single commit.
If some code has been committed to the repository but you then realize later that those changes should not have been commited for some reason (code breaks some functionalities, tests not running, …), it is possible to execute a reverse merge.
In order to revert a single commit in the working copy, one can simply use the following syntax:
1 svn merge -c -N .
where N is the revision number that needs to be reverted.
