I'm creating a branch in source control to strip large parts of an application out. Whilst giving this branch a name, I started questioning if "removal" is the right word.
As I'm not specifically just removing the code, I'm also rewriting a few other parts to fit around the new code structure.
I was wondering, is there a synonym for "removal" when talking about code?
I was thinking maybe "refactor", but I'm only about 10-20% of the code change will be refactoring. Most of the changes will be literally stripping code out.
