Please describe the problem.
The 'present' flag in the wanted files flag for a repository is ignored when doing a
git annex sync --content, which causes git annex to (try to) drop all files. E.g. the line
wanted $repoid = lackingcopies=1 or present
git annex vicfg tries to drop all files if enough copies are available.
git annex drop --auto works as expected and doesn't try to drop files.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Use 'present' in the 'wanted' option of a repo and do a
git annex sync --content.
wanted $repouuid = present was enough to trigger that behaviour.
What version of git-annex are you using? On what operating system?
git-annex version 6.20160114 on Arch Linux.
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)
This behaviour is relatively recent. Until some time ago everything worked as expected with the expression above.
