Please describe the problem.

Adding a file with a long extension, like Apple Numbers file (for example budget.numbers) results in it being added to the backend without file extension at all.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

$ touch budget.numbers
$ git-annex add budget.numbers
add budget.numbers ok
(recording state in git...)
$ git-annex lookupkey budget.numbers

$ touch budget.num
$ git annex add budget.num
add budget.num ok
(recording state in git...)
$ git annex lookupkey budget.num

macOS 10.13.6

Please provide any additional information below.

macOS isn't able to open a file without extension. In order to just view it, I have to git annex unlock it, so that there's a real file with an extension. Is there a way to tell macOS to use symlink extension instead? Or other workaround?

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)

Yup, I've been using it for 5 years. It's awesome! Thank you.
