When I run
git annex info, it stops to ask me for "local annex keys":
$ git annex info repository mode: indirect trusted repositories: 0 semitrusted repositories: 3 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001 -- web 1xxxxxx7-6xx1-4xx1-8xx8-5xxxxxxxxxx1 -- here (usbdisk) bxxxxxx6-bxxe-4xx2-bxxe-fxxxxxxxxxxf -- origin (local) untrusted repositories: 0 transfers in progress: none available local disk space: 36.25 gigabytes (+1 megabyte reserved) local annex keys:
What are these "local annex keys"?
Edit: Ah! it wasn't asking me anything, just echoing my keystrokes. It was counting keys stored in the annex, and taking a while. Sorry for the noise!
