I did not recieve feedback on my comment , so I try to post my question again but more clearly.
Is it possible to run the assistent/the webapp without the functionality of 'git annex watch'?
I'd like to use the assistant and to have the automatic syncing but I do not want the local repository to be watched. Instead I prefer to manually add/drop my files.
I do not see the 'pause button' mentioned in my earlier question .
