gPodder Bug Tracker – Bug 2012
auto.cleanup doesn't seem to work with the gpo CLI

Running gpo doesn't seem to remove older podcast files that have been downloaded based on the auto.cleanup settings
root@server003:~# gpo set | grep cleanup
Storing data in /usr/share/gPodder (GPODDER_HOME is set)
Storing downloads in /StoragePool/Video/Movies (GPODDER_DOWNLOAD_DIR is set)
auto.cleanup.days = 7
auto.cleanup.played = True
auto.cleanup.unfinished = True
auto.cleanup.unplayed = True
this is with gPodder 3.5.2 installed through apt-get on Ubuntu 14.04 running as a headless server
I do have a workaround of starting a desktop linux VM, ssh into the server from the VM,set the X Display to the desktop VM in the ssh session and then run gPodder but it'd be nice if "gpo update" or "gpo download" would also run the cleanup as the GUI client does as I'm running gpo through cron.
I did try gpo help, Google, the manual and FAQ but didn't find much that seemed relevant. Sorry!
Implemented in http://gpodder.org/commit/97a5c024, will be part of the next release.
