Description

The current scripts' retention mechanism is to keep files up to a configurable number of days.

The new script will initially:
  • Keep all files for a configurable number of days
  • Keep the first and last files of each day for a configurable number of days prior to that
  • Keep the first and last files of each month for a configurable number of months prior to that (maybe)

Priority is high because the feature is wanted for use with the newly implemented MySQL replication
