Re: zef: too many files in ~/.raku/short
Message ID:
Also regarding zef, I noticed that ~/.zef/store stores a "git clone" of all
the previous versions of every installed module, even when one explicitly
uninstalls the old versions of them.
Is there a zef command that I'm unaware of to clean up that directory?
