 <h2><a name="deleting">Removing files from the Cygwin distribution</a></h2>
 
 To cause files to be removed from the distribution, upload an empty file with the name of the file that you want deleted, prefixed with a "<tt>-</tt>".
 
 <p>For example, if you want to delete the file <tt>foo-1.2-1.tar.xz</tt> then upload an empty file named:<pre> -foo-1.2-1.tar.xz</pre></p>
 
-<p>Wildcards: "<tt>*</tt>" and "<tt>?</tt>" are supported.  So,<pre> -foo-1.2-1*</pre> will cause both the binary and src package files to be removed.</p>
-
 <p>Note that files are not actually deleted; they are moved to a vault where they will be removed after some indeterminate amount of time.</p>
 
 <p>This technique should work with directories but some confusion may arise if you delete a directory, recreate it, and attempt to remove it again.  This scenario has not been tested.</p>
