Please describe the problem.
Using the webapp to generate a new (local) repository instantly takes it to the following state:
user@local:~/Annex$ git status # On branch master # Changes to be committed: # (use "git reset HEAD <file>..." to unstage) # # deleted: uuid.log # user@local:~/Annex$ git branch git-annex * master user@local:~/Annex$ git log commit 90bfcaf17b0576d8ecdc48ae44dda22d41464acc Author: local <user> Date: Sun Nov 3 15:30:17 2013 +0100 created repository user@local:~/Annex$ git show HEAD commit 90bfcaf17b0576d8ecdc48ae44dda22d41464acc Author: local <user> Date: Sun Nov 3 15:30:17 2013 +0100 created repository diff --git a/uuid.log b/uuid.log new file mode 100644 index 0000000..9df3670 --- /dev/null +++ b/uuid.log @@ -0,0 +1 @@ +987e7b9a-aa9d-41db-ae92-23fcae7f6187 user@local:~/Annex timestamp=1383489017.181 user@local:~/Annex$
I'm new to git-annex, so I'm not quite sure, but looking at internals this file should only exist in the git-annex branch, not in master. Furthermore, from this state it seems impossible to get "sync with your other devices" to work, because of a merge conflict on this change.
Perhaps some sort of a race-condition with the annex-assistant picking up the uuid.log file while the repository is being initialized?
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
Ubuntu 13.10 with git-annex 4.20130815
