I've been toying with the idea of auto archiving files (that is - removing them from .) based on a set of rules.
Git already provides attribute management for files and I put together a simple script that tries to achieve the following:
- Look for files with X copies (including a local one)
- Verify that the file is not recent (defined as not having been dropped or getted within X days )
- Verify that the file has an annex.archive attribute
- Archive if the above is met
Here is the script: http://pastebin.com/53iLqyPd
You just add the annex.archive attribute to files via .gitattributes to use
The script runs in preview mode... exec with autoArchive.sh commit to drop the files.
