I have previously been confused by how to have a bit more manual control over where files are (as in).
I thought perhaps something like an archive directory would work, but as I might want different computers to have different content, perhaps a per-computer archive repository.
To that end, I have
walter@dionysus:~/annex$ git annex content . (exclude=archive/dionysus/* or (not (copies=archive:1 or copies=smallarchive:1))) or (not copies=semitrusted+:1) ok
which is a modified version of the archive preferred content, but with the intention that I change the part after
exclude to be different for each client.
I also set the group to client for this client (dionysus).
However, it does not seem to drop files when I move them into
archive/dionysus/, and I cannot see anything in the logs to suggest why.
What am I doing wrong here? Or, is this the wrong approach?
