App::Pinto::Command::delete - permanently remove an archive
pinto --root=REPOSITORY_ROOT delete [OPTIONS] TARGET ...
!! THIS COMMAND IS EXPERIMENTAL !!
This command is dangerous. If you just want to remove packages
or distributions from a stack, then you should probably be looking at the
unregister command instead.
This command permanently removes an archive from the repository, thereby
unregistering it from all stacks and wiping it from all history (as if it had
never been put in the repository). Beware that once an archive is deleted it
cannot be recovered. There will be no record that the archive was ever added
or deleted, and this change cannot be undone.
To merely remove packages from a stack (while preserving the archive), use the
Arguments are the archives that you want to delete. Archives are specified as
"AUTHOR/ARCHIVE-NAME". For example:
You can also pipe arguments to this command over STDIN. In that case, blank
lines and lines that look like comments (i.e. starting with "#" or
';') will be ignored.
- Deletes the archive even if its packages are pinned to a
stack. Take care when deleting pinned packages, as it usually means that
particular package is important to someone.
