I have a repo alpha

florian@asaru ~/git-annex % tree
└── alpha
    ├── archive
    │   └── some_archived_file
    └── some_file

which is standard/client.

Another repo beta, cloned from alpha is also standard/client. git annex sync --content makes beta get all the content. Perfect!

Another repo delta, also cloned from alpha is:

% git annex wanted . && git annex group .
archive backup

Manpage of git-annex-group says a repo could be in multiple groups.

I expect the groups to be combined. archive makes the other repos drop content in archive/ when it has reached this repo, backup to also retain deleted files.

But git annex sync --content gets no files:

florian@asaru ~/git-annex/delta (git)-[master] % git annex sync --content

What is wrong there? My mental model or some git-annex issue?
