I am trying to understand how git-annex works. Does it version big files at all?
Thanks for the pointer.
The reason I asked about is that it says that "git-annex allows managing files with git, without checking the file contents into git. ". So I was just trying to understand the mechanic behind the description. If it is not check into the git then probably it is not versioning the files. I assumed that it must be merely a sync tool.
I have one more follow up question.
So git-annex versions files as I understand. Is it possible to use it without file versioning and just use it as a sync tool. I realize that there are example scenarios to demonstrate it however I would like to disable versioning if possible because I am intending to use it on large folders with big binary type files.
