I work on a maintenance project. There will be more than one task
delivered at one time. The onsite guy will checkout the files by task,
and test. If a task is OK then the working copy is tagged by task
number. If any of the task is not working and it is a new file that
has to be deleted in order to not tag this with other tasks. That task
may be left untouched for several days till it is fixed and new tasks
may be delivered in between. So it is difficult to document and
exclude these files over a period of time. It will be nice if I could
give a script to delete the files.
