1) CLEANRUV stuff should be in your patch 1031 and not here (but I will comment
on the code in this mail since it is in this patch)

2) In new command defitinion:

+    "abort-clean-ruv":(1, 1, "Replica ID of to abort cleaning", ""),

I miss error message in case REPLICA_ID is not passed, this way error message
when I omit the parameter is confusing:

# ipa-replica-manage abort-clean-ruv
Usage: ipa-replica-manage [options]

ipa-replica-manage: error: must provide a command [force-sync | clean-ruv |
disconnect | connect | list-ruv | del | re-initialize | list | abort-clean-ruv]

On another note, I am thinking about the new command(s). Since we now have
abort-clean-ruv command, we may want to also implement list-clean-ruv commands
in the future to see all CLEANALLRUV commands in process... Or we may enhance
list-ruv to write a flag like [CLEANALLRUV in process] for RUV's for which
CLEANALLRUV task is in process.

3) Will clean-ruv - abort-clean-ruv - clean-ruv sequence work? If the aborted
CLEANALLRUV task stays in DIT, we may not be able to enter new CLEANALLRUV task
because we always use the same DN...

Btw. did abort CLEANALLRUV command worked for you? Mine seemed to be stuck on
replicas that are down just like CLEANALLRUV command. I had then paralelly
running CLEANALLRUV and ABORT CLEANALLRUV running for the same RUV ID. Then, it
is unclear to me what this command is actually good for.

4) Man page now contains non-existent command:

--- a/install/tools/man/ipa-replica-manage.1
+++ b/install/tools/man/ipa-replica-manage.1
@@ -42,12 +42,18 @@ Manages the replication agreements of an IPA server.
 \- Immediately flush any data to be replicated from a server specified with
the \-\-from option
+\- Remove leftover references to a deleted master.

The cleanup procedure was implemented rather as an option to the del command
than a separate command.

5) My favorite - new cleanup procedure user prompt miss the --force option
useful for test automation

+            if not ipautil.user_input("Continue to clean master?", False):
+                sys.exit("Cleanup aborted")

Otherwise the patch looks good.
