    Patch Repository housekeeping

      Is there a way of housekeeping the patch repository?


      I am setting up RHEL patching using BL and have setup an online solution downloading to an external server holding the patch respository.  Running the update catalogue works fine and newer versions are always updated in the catalogue.

      I see that you can update the catalogue and mark older patches as irrelivant and via remove irrelivant patches remove them from the catalogue, but  the rpm files still remain in the repository location.  Is there any process by which once a patch has been marked as irrelevant that it will be removed from the catalogue and the repository location?
