Any consecutive git annex get commands don’t notice that the file is not completely transferred and leave it in a broken state. git annex get --failed does not correct the problem.

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)

Yes, it (kind of) works for keeping my music library in sync.
