Adam Slagell commented on BIT-1047:

I don't see a decision here, but what do people think about renaming rather than deleting. Say to <filename>.old or <filename>.$DATE

We can push this off to implement till the next release, but it would be nice to have a clear decision.

>             Fix For: 2.5
> People keep having problems when they install a new Bro version 
> over the installation of an old one because scripts that have disappeared in the new version will keep sticking around from the previous installation. 
> We should simply remove the old scripts/base and scripts/policy before installing anything new. People aren't supposed to edit in there so that should be safe.
