Periodically clean out Hudson workspaces

Reported by: jdsiiro Owned by: jdsiiro
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Hudson Version:
Keywords: Cc:


When using "svn updating", Hudson does not clear out a job's workspace. This can mask build system errors, for example, when the checkout directories change, but the task scanner configuration is not updated. For example, see the open-tasks trend plot for  Coopr_trunk_python2.5 between builds #139 and #151.

One solution could be a marker file in the workspace that causes the workspace to be blown away after so many days. Ideally, this would be a Hudson plugin that runs before the workspace is created/updated; however, I can implement a reasonable approximation in the acro build scripts (basically, as a last step, blow away everything other than the build directory at the end of a build, iif the marker file is "too old").
