Comment #1 on issue 1912 by chipx86: Some way to purge old review requests
This is something you could do as a custom script that interfaces with the
database (you can build a custom management command as described in the
Admin manual), but it's not something we're going to put into the core
One of the benefits of Review Board to many people is that the review
history of every change exists forever. If we were to add some sort of
auto-deletion, we'd likely be creating a support nightmare as soon as
someone decides they need access to some old review request and wants to
know how to re-load that particular one from a backup.
So I'd suggest writing a script for this using a custom management command.
We can help you with any questions on the reviewboard-dev mailing list.
It'll require a rudimentary knowledge of Django models and Python, and bits
of our codebase, but if you or someone there is comfortable at all with
Python, it won't be bad.
