RVM cleanup all does not remove .git directories #1239

I've just noticed that jruby-head and other installations of JRuby built from source take up several hundreds of MBs of disk space. It turns out, rvm cleanup all no longer removes ~/.rvm/rubies/jruby-head/.git. I believe it used to (and I think it should).

If this does not sound like a good idea to @mpapis, here is a one liner anyone can use to redeem disk space when you have many Ruby installations

find ~/.rvm/rubies/ -type d -name .git -print | xargs /bin/rm -rf

this one should not be there, It should be cleaned during installation

This issue is a serious pain point for travis-ci. We run out of ~ partition disk space after the recent upgrade to latest-1.16 every other provisioning.

Try latest-1.15
With latest-1.16 we experience excessive disk space usage,
