      Description

      For a long time the StratumOnes twiki has recommended that stratum 1s clean out old files from the /srv/cvmfs/<repo>/data/txn directories, but I just learned that release manager machines can suffer the same problems of old files accumulating there after failed publish operations. I think cvmfs_swissknife or cvmfs_server could do a better job of cleaning those out after any type of failure, on both stratum 1s and release managers. There used to be a concern of one operation interfering with another, but now we have locks and if the cleanup is done before the lock is released there should be no danger of that.
