Please describe the problem.
Filenames for the include statement for preferred content can not contain spaces.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Create an annex repo
git annex vicfg
- Enter expression include='pictures/dir with spaces'
- git annex complains: # ** Parse error in next line: Parse failure: near "with" Parse failure: near "spaces'"
(The ' is interpreted as part of the filepath.)
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
I am using the current binaries from Debian stable amd64.
git-annex version: 5.20140320~bpo70+1 build flags: Assistant Webapp Pairing S3 Inotify DBus XMPP Feeds Quvi TDFA key/value backends: SHA256E SHA1E SHA512E SHA224E SHA384E SHA256 SHA1 SHA512 SHA224 SHA384 WORM URL remote types: git gcrypt S3 bup directory rsync web tahoe glacier hook external local repository version: 5 supported repository version: 5 upgrade supported from repository versions: 0 1 2 4
Please provide any additional information below.
The only workaround I found is to use a glob for the filepath which only works for the first space: include='pictures/dir*'.
