The current code simply throws an exception on any error in shutil.rmtree
and stops removing expired composes completely. The error can for example
be "Permission denied" when some files in compose directory are owned
by root:root as a result of issue with runroot tasks execution.

In this commit, such errors are logged, but the rmtree execution continues
and removes as much composes/files as it can.

I haven't used onerror, but the docs don't indicate that the exception is silenced by it.

The doc says:

If ignore_errors is true, errors resulting from failed removals will be ignored; if false or omitted, such errors are handled by calling a handler specified by onerror or, if that is omitted, they raise an exception.

So the exception are raised only if onerror kwarg is omitted, otherwise they are not raised.


Thanks for clarifying!
