Subject RE: Delete files from Archiva

Hi Seb.

I did enable this consumer.  I also deleted these files from disk.  What remains is that the
Browse feature of the UI still shows all old builds.  If I browse directly to the repository
itself via the WebDAV url, everything seems to be ok.  There seems to be a disconnect between
what is on the disk, what is shown in the individual repository and finally what is shown
via the Browse Repository feature of the main UI.

This last point is my main problem.  The browse function still shows old builds that have
been removed.

Do you enable the *repository-purge consumer* in the repository scanning screen ?
