Litter  Help: purge

The "purge" command:

The purge command removes content from a repository and stores that content
in a "graveyard".  The graveyard exists so that content can be recovered
using the "fossil purge undo" command.  The "fossil purge obliterate"
command empties the graveyard, making the content unrecoverable.

==== WARNING: This command can potentially destroy historical data and ====
==== leave your repository in a goofy state. Know what you are doing!  ====
==== Make a backup of your repository before using this command!       ====

==== FURTHER WARNING: This command is a work-in-progress and may yet   ====
==== contain bugs.                                                     ====
