This is something I'd be really keen to have too.

I'm running castget on an <a href="http://www.nslu2-linux.org/wiki/Unslung/HomePage">Unslung</a> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSLU2">NSLU2</a> serving a <a href="http://www.firebox.com/index.html?dir=firebox&action=product&pid=1599&src_t=wnp">Pinnacle Soundbridge</a> through <a href="http://www.fireflymediaserver.org/">Firefly server</a>... Works beautifully, with castget running nightly at 1am since my broadband usage is uncapped between midnight and 8am.

But it would be even better if I could limit by both / either timescale or number of episodes. (If I had to choose only one, it would be number of episodes I think.)

I am very very much interested in such a feature as I have not yet found a nice way to do such a thing with any other shell-based podcatcher.

Greetings from Germany!

I submitted this via email but am putting it here too for tracking/radar. :)

Castget could really use some retention settings to optionally clear out downloaded podcasts based upon various criteria. The ones that come to mind are:

- option to limit podcast directory to certain # of podcasts (oldest deleted first).

- option to limit podcast directory to a certain amount of time (only podcasts received within the last X number of days/weeks retained)

Some people might also want to limit by space, but that's not a feature I've come in-need of yet. You may want to consider it though.



(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
