It's a very useful method the entropy's one of keep all the versions of packages until I manually clean the cache.
But now that I don't need downgrading I want to keep in the cache only the latest version of packages, in /var/lib/entropy/client/packages...
Have you any script or suggestion to clear only the old versions of packages from cache and keep the latest ones?
