SimFactory should expire its executable cache

Issue #1281 new
Ian Hinder created an issue

SimFactory stores executables in a CACHE directory in basedir. This directory seems to grow without limit. I just discovered that I had 73 GB of executables in there. SimFactory should probably delete anything older than a few weeks.

    You are right. How did you end up with 73GB? It only seems to store one executable per configuration name for me. Do you use a lot of different configuration names? (which would be perfectly ok, just wondering)

    I think this might have happened when I was doing the automated tests on this machine. I would name the configuration after the git commit hash of the code that was being tested. If this is the case, then it is not as serious a problem as I thought, as this would be quite an unusual thing to do.
