   You can delete each generation that contains the file you want to get
   rid of, but it means deleting the whole generation. It's not possible
   to delete just the file.
   
   To find the generations, the easiest method is to use "obnam mount",
   and then see which directories have the unwanted file: if the
   repository gets mounted at /foo/bar, look for /foo/bar/*/path/to/file,
   and whatever matches * is the name id of the generation.

   Hi
   
   Apologies if this is an often asked question...
   
   I'm new to obnam, but it seems a very useful program - I see there's a
   method to delete generations (forget), however, is there a way to delete
   all backup generations for a specific file?
   
   Many thanks
   
   Carl.
