Can we clean up osgi-plugins in jira?

I have been doing some server maintenance and noticed that the /var/atlassian/application-data/jira/plugins/.osgi-plugins/ is consuming 460M.

This is a relatively new JIRA instance that is only used by 10 users.  So this directory is contributing to 90% of the backup size.

Is there a process to clean up this directory?

This widget could not be displayed.

The files in plugins/.bundled-plugins and plugins/.osgi-plugins are recreated on the start of JIRA. So you can safely clean-up when JIRA is stopped.

This is even recommended on the upgrade - see KB.
