Subject RE: Purge build output directory

OK...I'll have a look again as I think the last time I launched the
purge, files were kept on disk. I'll confirm if it works or not soon.

I think I get it. :)  This feature purges the directories, but not the
database entries.  I assume you're looking at the 'Builds' tab before
and after the purge, and still see the builds listed there?

Here's what I see in the build output directory for project 1 before and
after the purge:

wsmoak@artemis:~/apache-continuum-1.2.2/data/build-output-directory$ ls
1  19  19.log.txt  1.log.txt  22  22.log.txt

wsmoak@artemis:~/apache-continuum-1.2.2/data/build-output-directory$ ls
22  22.log.txt

It deleted builds 1 and 19, and left 22.  That's consistent with my
configuration and the build dates.

You will still see them listed on the 'Builds' tab, because this only
purges the directories and the build logs.  The database entries remain
for historical purposes.  If you click the 'Result' link you'll see that
there is nothing in the text box where you'd usually see the build log.

If you want to delete the database entries, you can use the checkboxes
and Delete button on the 'Builds' tab.

There is no scheduled purge for that yet because it needs to be a
two-step process-- archive them to get them off of the 'Builds' tab but
keep them available for statistics, then provide a way to really delete
them later.
