Subject RE: Permanent removal
Date Thu, 12 Jan 2012 08:20:08 GMT
There may be Companywide retention policies for Document archival. Working, Approved, Archived,
Deleted. There might be cases where deletion is required by these policies. 

Dumpfilter is just a workaround for a new command and privilege (r,w,d). From what I can see,
permanent delete Issues has already been discussed several times. AFAIK there is no plan to
implement such a command. Please correct me if I am wrong.
