Tidy up tracker folder after initial installation

Christian Wolf
Hello to everyone,

I have the following request:
I installed roundup recently and did some testing with "dummy" issues to
see if the mail interface is working (it took quite a few tries to get
it all running as desired). Now I have a set of issues, files and
messages dangling around, which I do not want to be visible at later
when in production environment.

I tried to retire these issues using roundup-admin as well as the files.
I seem unable to find the issues anymore (but maybe I just look the
wrong way) and the files definitively do not get removed.

How to tidy up any unneeded files and issues from the database?

Thanks a lot
Christian Wolf

Retire only sets a flag on the retired item in den database. This is
done to remove something from the search but leave links from other
items in the database intact.

If you want to completely nuke the current database you can do

roundup-admin initialise

This will ask you for a new admin password and completely initialize the
tracker deleting everything in the database.

If you just want to remove something completely from the database you
can do so with a script that contains something like:

db.<class>.destroy (id)

will completely destroy the given thing (be it an issue or an email).
Using this is generally not recommended as it leaves dangling links
behind. That's why there is no command-line equivalent.
