Please describe the problem.

There was some recent work to "centralize" such prompts but it seems some are still "leaking through" multiple times. May be it is because there are 2 available repos on that remote host, so annex generates one per each of those? (although it knows only about origin)

What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?

6.20170810+gitgff6f9e203-1~ndall+1

Please provide any additional information below.

$> git annex get -J5 .
