Hello,

I have two git annex repos, AA and BB in direct mode. Both have edited a binary file before syncing

``` ~/Desktop/BB (git)-[annex/direct/master] % git annex sync commit ok pull origin remote: Counting objects: 21, done. remote: Compressing objects: 100% (17/17), done. remote: Total 21 (delta 3), reused 0 (delta 0) Unpacking objects: 100% (21/21), done. From /home/florian/Desktop/AA d55cfa2..b86e708 annex/direct/master -> origin/annex/direct/master 83ff4c6..5cfbd34 git-annex -> origin/git-annex d7b79e8..b86e708 master -> origin/master d7b79e8..b86e708 synced/master -> origin/synced/master

Merge conflict was automatically resolved; you may want to examine the result.

``` How can I resolve this conflict now? Is there a way to tell which bin1 / bin2 is from AA, which from BB? Is there a way to tell git annex to completely take the data from AA or BB?

This case might appear somehow artifical but I was caught in that various times when syncing my music database. Actually I didn't care which version of the database it took, but I was unable to produce a coherent data set, so that the database files only come from one sync partner.

I did the git annex get after syncing, becaue usually I sync using --content.

Thanks, Florian
