Deleting old revisions is not recommended.

Just keep all revisions instead. There is an option to keep only 1
revision, but 5 is rather arbitrary. The 'point' of an SCM system is to
keep the entire history. This is not just me being pedantic - the fact
is that if you keep 5 then the change you really need to
see/backout/audit is the 6th one...
If you really want 5 revisions then look at Apple's 'time machine' or
some other 'backup' software.
