We can automatically perform the cleanup task at the deletion time to minimize 
orphans and ghosts in the directory.

This patch runs the cleanruv action on all masters following a delete.

Uhmm I think I'll NACK this one.

You should clean_ruv() in del_link() not in del_master()


Rich, please correct me if I am mistaken.

I don't believe you need to do clean_ruv() at all for a del_link()... it's not 
the individual replica agreements changing that needs purging.  It is the 
deletion of a master that requires you to purge via clean_ruv().

How so? That is, how does a 389 plugin running on server A know that server B 
has been removed as a replica?

Well, right. Maybe it's my lack of understanding what we need to do for 
CLEANRUV. I'm still unclear on which host(s) we need to do anything when 
removing a replica.

My reading of JR's comment was "any host that knew anything about a replica 
that is deleted needs a task run".

Once you create a replica, the information about that replica is propagated to 
all other replicas (eventually, depending on the speed of replication) and 
stored in the RUV tombstone entry. So when you remove a replica, you should 
also run the CLEANRUV task to remove the information about that replica from 
all other replicas.
