My problem: I want to free up some disk space by doing
git annex drop FOO, but then when I do
git annex add BAR; git annex sync --content, FOO reappears.
Looking into the man pages, I need to set up
git annex vicfg to make
sync --content ignore (exclude) FOO.
I am overwhelmed by the configuration file and would just like to see a minimal complete example configuration file that does what I want. In the long run I probably want to use options like "groupwanted" and such, but am not sure what a "group" is exactly.
Grepping for 'exclude', my config file has this already in it:
# Standard preferred contents # (Used by wanted or groupwanted expressions containing "standard") # (For reference only; built-in and cannot be changed!) # standard client = (include=* and ((exclude=*/archive/* and exclude=archive/*) or (not (copies=archive:1 or copies=smallarchive:1)))) or approxlackingcopies=1
but I am not sure how to go about it. For one, the comment hints that I need to use a secondary
groupwanted expression to reference the
standard keyword to actually use it, but I am just confused by all of these interlocking components.
Also, I see stuff like this:
# Repository preferred contents # (Set to "standard" to use a repository's group's preferred contents) # (for web) #wanted 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001 = # (for bittorrent) #wanted 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000002 = # (for l@k0:/dev/shm/annex) #wanted 56e6081b-4282-4f07-b53c-9042240cd75e = # (for k0) #wanted a71d805d-df77-42e7-97b0-ba7686c05083 = # (for l@m0:/mnt/a/annex.git [origin]) #wanted c5c012cc-2080-481f-81bc-7f449f33490b =
and am confused by these UUIDs. Where do these UUIDs come from? Am I supposed to use UUIDs?
If there is a link or another doc I missed, please point me in the right direction.
