Subject Re: Repository purge documentation

Hi Arnaud,

You can only activate one of them (if the # of days old is > 0, then purge
by # of days old; otherwise, purge by retention count). However, the purge
by # of days old would always respect the value that is set in the retention
count. So the answer to your question is no..

In the purge by # of days old, the number of actual artifacts in the version
directory would always be checked first against the retention count before
checking if the artifact's age falls within the # of days old set. So if the
retention count is 2, the # of days old is 20 and you have 4 artifacts that
are all more than 20 days old, the latest 2 will still be retained because
you have a retention count of 2. This means that you can only have less
snapshots than the retention count if and only if the number of actual
artifacts before the purge is less than the retention count.

Hope that's clearer :-)
I'll update the purge section in the docs and try to make it more reader
friendly. I also got a little confused after reading it (and i was the one
who wrote it hehe). Also, I think I've missed putting the purge activation
part in the docs.
