[openFATE 313375] Have zypper clean cached packages intelligently
Feature changed by: Jan Engelhardt (jengelh)
Feature #313375, revision 3
Title: Have zypper clean cached packages intelligently

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Donovan Cameron (saultdon)
Partner organization:

When you tell zypper to clean the cached packages with the command:
zypper clean This removes ALL cached packages. Over time, zypper will
keep all versions of a package RPM file. This can result in a bloated
/var/cache/zypp folder.
It would be nice to be able to remove all OLD cached packages and keep
the latest one, or even have more functionality like being able to
specify how many previous versions (to control rollback ability when
using the --force flag).
Or if it finds that a package is the only one, just keep it.
Pseudo code example: If package is installed then ..If package names
are the same ....keep the newest version ..Else if package has no
matches not delete Else package is no longer installed ..delete
cached package
