NAME

git-annex required - get or set required content expression

SYNOPSIS

git annex required repository [expression]

DESCRIPTION

When run with an expression, configures the content that is required to be held in the archive.

For example:

git annex required . "include=*.mp3 or include=*.ogg"

Without an expression, displays the current required content setting of the repository.

While git-annex-wanted is just a preference, git-annex-required designates content that should really not be removed. For example a file that is wanted can be removed with git annex drop, but if that file is required, it would need to be removed with git annex drop --force.

NOTES

The required command was added in git-annex 5.20150420.
