Hi Phil,
If you are referring to an approach that can be done programatically that would be in easy questions. I am assuming that you already know the list of PIDs that you would like to keep. You could write a loop that iterates over your repository PIDs and check if the current PID exists in the pids_to_keep list. If doesn't exist then call the purge(). This is how I am actually doing when I need to clean-up.

How can I do a mass purge of records?  For example, I have 10,000 records I want to purge, but the 2,000 after them I want to keep.  I don't see a way in the admin GUI to delete records 1 to 10000 - how could I do this?  Thinking ahead of ways to dump large ingests if there's an issue.
