       delete-pr - deletes closed PRs


              [ -V | --version ] | [ -h | --help ] |
              [ -d name | --database=name ] [ -c | --closed | PR ]


       Deletes the specified PR, or if the --closed option is given, all of the closed PRs in the
       database are deleted.

       delete-pr must be run by the GNATS user (by default gnats).

       Note that deleting PRs is generally a very bad idea.  It flies in the  face  of  the  very
       idea  of  using  a  Problem  Reporting  system  and  should  only be considered in special
       situations.  Such a situation might  for  instance  arise  if  a  mail  loop  causes  mass
       duplicate submissions or if you receive spam to the PR submission e-mail address.


       -V, --version
              Prints the program version to stdout and exits.

       -h, --help
              Prints a short help text to stdout and exits.

       -d, --database
              Specifies  the  database from which the PR(s) are to be deleted.  If no database is
              specified, the database named  default  is  assumed.   This  option  overrides  the
              database specified in the GNATSDB environment variable.

              Requests that all closed PRs in the database be deleted.

       PR     Requests that the specified PR be deleted.  The PR must be in a closed state.


       The  GNATSDB environment variable is used to determine which database to use.  For a local
       database, it contains the name of the database to access.

       For network access via gnatsd, it contains a colon-separated list of strings that describe
       the remote database, in the form


       Any of the fields may be omitted, but at least one colon must appear; otherwise, the value
       is assumed to be the name of a local database.

       If GNATSDB is not set and the --database option is not supplied, it is  assumed  that  the
       database is local and that its name is default.
