New Revision: 26216
   Changeset: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/26216


Remove the myth.find_orphans.pl and myth.rebuilddatabase.pl scripts.

These scripts have bitrotted over the years and can cause problems with data (including inserting invalid data into the database) and have resulted in more than one user having lost a bunch of (or all) recordings due to the script's failing to detect appropriate configuration.  Though I haven't yet finished the replacement functionality, the use of these scripts isn't recommended, so I'm removing them from the distribution.  They still exist in the repository for anyone who wants to roll the dice with them.

All the functionality provided by these scripts will be incorporated into mythbackend, with interfaces in mythfrontend and MythWeb (or any other user of MythXML, including the bindings).
