Description (last modified by )
This is a frequently requested feature. We should start with some little script that does this, and build on it. I tried all the following, and ran the test suite and it worked fine.
- rm SAGE_ROOT/local/lib/*.a
- rm SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/build/lib.*
- rm SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/build/temp.*
- strip SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/Singular-* SAGE_ROOT/local/bin/gfan # gfan is a huge win.
- jsmath image fonts are in MoinMoin? and are *HUGE*. Just delete everything related to moinmoin...
- strip SAGE_ROOT/local/lib/*.so
- rm -rf SAGE_ROOT/local/python/site-package/MoinMoin
- rm all files in SAGE_ROOT/devel/sage/sage/ that begin "* Generated by Cython" (I didn't do that)

If we mount a sage source installation with mount option strictatime or relatime we can just touch all the files to have an access time in the deep past (with something like cd $SAGE_ROOT ; for x in $(find) ; do touch -ad "1981-02-03 04:05:06" ; done
), then run the whole doctest suite, then use stat() to find files which were unused. This should give us a good idea of what is never used. Unfortunately this does not seem possible on sage.math - POSIX atime is not respected in my homedir, probably as it is mounted over NFS...

It seems like the LiveCD folks have also worked on stuff like this...
