Several times now I've done something like:
$ git annex unlock movie.avi $ mv /tmp/fixed.avi movie.avi $ git annex lock movie.avi
Oops, I just lost my fixed.avi! That really feels like the right sequence of operations to me, so I'm always surprised when I make that mistake. I would like to see the current
lock renamed to something like
undo-unlock, or have the behavior changed to be the same as
add, or maybe warn and require a
--force when the file has been changed.
If changing current behavior is undesirable, maybe
unlock could just print a reminder that
git annex add is the correct next step after making changes?
Failing that, I suppose I could slowly start to learn from my mistakes.
