Subject: dpkg --prune-excluded: remove files excluded by --path-exclude/--path-include
Date: Tue, 16 Nov 2010 15:18:07 +0100
Package: dpkg
Version: 1.15.8.5
Severity: wishlist

With the addition of --path-exclude and --path-include, it would be nice
to have a way to remove excluded files from the installed system, you
typically need this when you setup the file exclusion.

I suggest to add a new action called "--prune-excluded" for this. Combined
with --no-act it would just print a list of files that would be removed.

On the opposite, maybe dpkg-query could have a --list-missing option
to display a list of files recorded in the database that are not present
on the system.

Cheers,
