How to clean list of "Moved or Deleted" Local repositories?

Is there any way to clean up the list of Local repositories all at once? I must have 50 "moved or deleted" entries. And cleaning them up one by one is no joy.


Also I can't see why I have this many. I admittedly delete repos occassionally, and once I moved my root folder, but still it seems like if I delete a repo, then clone it to the same place, it creates a new entry here.

I also would like to have an option to just empty the list.

There is a right-click option to 'delete' an entry. But that has a very scary description and is probably not what I want!

"Are you sure you want to remove the following nodes and all of their children?"

Besides that, when I open a repository through the File/Open dialogue, it does not appear in the list! So I am struck with old entries I don't even dare to touch.
